Local  Living Festival


April 27, 2013

The Festival is run by dedicated volunteers.
Will you give us a couple of hours of your time?
You'll be joining a crew of amazing and dedicated people. 

There are 255  2-hour volunteer time slots
that need to be filled to make this Festival a success.
We appreciate your generosity with your time!

Perks for volunteering at least two hours include free Festival admission,
being part of the Festival Community, free refreshments, and
meeting the speakers and workshop presenters involved! 
Did we mention our undying thanks?
Plus volunteer discounts on our merchandise that supports the Festival!

Please note that volunteers are needed for
the days leading up to, during, and following the Festival
-- and also for our year-round programs. 
From a one-hour task that would be helpful to us,
to taking on a job as one of our co-coordinators --
you are welcome to join our team for the Festival
and many other projects we have in the works!
