Volunteers Needed!

I know we are still months away from the kick off of the fair & festival season, but in order for the events to run smoothly planning has begun since the last event ended.  Do you frequent the local festivals?  Do you have ideas on how to make things better?  Do you want to help out?  If you answered yes than your local festival committee wants to hear from you.

Clawson's 4th of July week Kiddie Parade

The local festivals take many months of planning and organizing to make things just right. They are ran by a hard working bunch of volunteers, unfortunately though, many people don't realize how much hard work goes into the planning and just enjoy the events.  In order for these festivals to continue to run well into the future they constantly need volunteers and donations.

Some of the volunteer work that may be needed is as simple as handling parking or tickets to as complex as organizing a parade or more.  If your time is limited and you have away of donating something for a bake sale or other type of fundraiser, or even cash I am sure they are even open to that. The best thing to do is contact your local festival committee or if your not sure who to get in touch with contact your local government offices for more information.

I have listed below some of the local festivals websites, if you know of others feel free to leave them in the comments section.

Once again, this is just a sampling of the local events that may need assistance, many communities may have multiple events throughout the year.  All the events need volunteers for tasks no matter how big or how small or donations no matter how big or small.  For more information on your local community's events contact your local government office.
