With this being a two day event we do need our volunteers there in the morning to open the gates for the trucks that do not park overnight. This is a a pretty simple volunteer job, just check in the vendors show them to their spaces, make sure they know where to find what they need (trash, parking, porta johns) and make sure the vendors tape down any electrical cords they might have.
We need Volunteers to help with the following:
- Check In Vendors
- Man Barricade to only let Vendors in and out
Are you skilled in the art of Sales??
We are looking for Volunteers to help us Sell Duck Tickets through out the Downtown Events as well some brave souls (or anyone just looking to cool of on Saturday) willing to jump in the River on Saturday and Catch these Ducks as they race down the Mighty AuSable River!!
Are you more of a doer?
Or maybe you have a crew that has some muscle and a little bit of time to offer?
Or MAYBE you really need those community service hours to graduate next year!!
Well we might just have the job for you! See below where we have a few odds and ends jobs that just needs a crew willing to work!!
