13 days to go…. Volunteers NEEDED

The Linn County Fair Association is made of and ran by all volunteers. It takes not only the association but many other volunteers to run the fair every year. As we grow from year to year we need more volunteers and this year isn’t any different.

The Linn County Fair Association is again inviting ANY adults and/or children to become a “Friend of the Fair” by volunteering to help with varying tasks before, during, and after the fair. Anyone who works 4 or more hours will receive a “Friend of the Fair” T-shirt.  Everyone MUST stop in the gatehouse to sign-in and out in order to receive a T-shirt. The sign-in/out process helps us to track the number of volunteer hours that we have each year that in turn use when applying for grants for the fair. For complete volunteer guidelines go to http://thelinncountyfair.com/2012/pdfs/volunteer/2012-volunteer-guidelines.pdf for more details.
