Hi everyone! I now have firm details about duties, dates and times for Celiac Awareness Month.
I need volunteers from 10-2 on the following dates:
May 12 – Eleanore Beattie has volunteered for this spot. If someone would like to join her please let me know.
The awareness box (pamphlets, membership kits, banner (to be confirmed)) will be waiting for you at Nature’s Fare. You will need to set up the table and possibly the banner, answer questions and take down the table at 2 pm. A demo table will be right beside you to bring people to the table to get info.
Poster Distribution (comments from Christine at Choices)
“It would be very helpful if you could have some volunteers take posters around the community and put them up where ever possible, for example on any community notice boards you can think of. If you are able to help with this, please coordinate with Nadene to make arrangements to get copies of the posters.” I would like to hear from people by April 18 – who can do it and how many posters you need. I will then order the correct number from Nadene and make arrangements to get the posters to you.
GF Fair at Choices May 8 (comments from Christine at Choices)
“Once you have your volunteer group organized, could you please forward their names to us? The event starts at 8:30; this is when we are asking participants to start signing in so that we can get things rolling at 9:00am sharp. If your volunteers show up at 8:00am they should have plenty of time to get their table set up. We have advertised that the event runs from 8:30-4:00. If you are able to have volunteers at the table for the duration of the event, it may be easiest to have two sets of volunteers so that one group covers the morning shift and one group stays until 4:00.” I would like 5-6 volunteers for the morning shift 8-12 and 4 volunteers from 12-4. If there is some overlap in times that would be great. We need 2-3 people at the table at all times to help with cook book and pocket dictionary sales, membership sign up and availability to talk to people. 2-3 other people could help with store tours. I know that there will be ‘lull’ times; however, it would be best to have a lot of coverage.
Morning volunteers so far are:
Tammy Craig – 8 am – 2 pm
Jodie Stevens – 8 am until ?
Angela Petrie – 8 am until ?
Clara Hare – 12ish (once seminar is over) until ?
Let me know what works for everyone ASAP. Thank you to those that have come forward already to help out.
