Festival volunteers needed for the 37th Townshippers’ Day

 

BROME, September 6, 2016 – The Townshippers’ Day organizing committee is currently seeking volunteers to help bring the 37th annual cultural festival and information fair to life on Saturday, September 17, 2016. Townshippers’ Day is a unique festival that celebrates many aspects of the Eastern Townships English-speaking community in an inclusive, open and respectful environment.

Volunteering is a great opportunity to meet new friends and spend time with familiar faces, and a great way to get behind the scenes of this vibrant and special event. From set-up, to interacting with festivalgoers, to supporting exhibitors, there are a variety of positions available before, during and after the event. The only qualifications required is your desire to have fun and be helpful.

Volunteers can give anywhere from an hour of their time to helping out all day long and will be appreciated with a free dinner from the Star Café the end of the day.

If you are interested in volunteering at this year’s festival, held in Brome at the fairgrounds, please contact Kate Holbrook, Townshippers’ Association Community and Culture Coordinator, at 450-242-4421 (toll free at 1-877-242-4421) or kw@townshippers.org.
