Community Service Opportunity - Montgomery County Fair - Aug 12-20

posted Jun 28, 2016, 7:02 PM by Lynn Hamilton
WHAT:  The Montgomery County Agricultural Fair 
WHEN:  Aug. 12-20, 2016.  
WHERE:   In the Middle of Gaithersburg, next to the railroad tracks.

Volunteers are needed during Fair preparation and the Fair week in the Cheese Booth and the Information Booths.  This is a fun and easy way to earn Student Service Learning hours or Agricultural Center Membership hours. Training sessions for both areas are scheduled so everyone becomes familiar with the responsibilities. The Cheese Booth also needs help before and after each training session to help prepare the booth for the Fair. To register for preferred work shifts everyone, including prior year volunteers MUST attend ONE of the following sessions:
Cheese Booth Orientation          or               Information Booth Orientation 
July 16, 2016 10:00 am-11:00 am                  July 16, 2016 11:15 am-12:15 pm  
July 23, 2016 11:00 am-12:00 pm                  July 23, 2016   9:30 am-10:30 am
July 30, 2016 11:30 am-12:30 pm                 July 30, 2016 10:00 am-11:00 am
Aug.  6, 2016 10:00am-11:00 am                  Aug.  6, 2016 11:15 am-12:15 pm
Sessions for both will meet at the Cheese Booth. The above Saturdays are Fair workdays and the Cheese Booth will need help preparing the building for the Fair. Fair workday  sign in begins at 8:00am each Saturday. Volunteers who sign in before 9:00am will get a free lunch ticket. Your help is always welcome.  Volunteering is more enjoyable with friends and family, so bring them along too !
