We are looking for volunteers to help out on Friday, July 13; Saturday, July 14; and Sunday, July 15. On Friday we will be setting up tents, hanging banners — in general, creating a festival! On Saturday and Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., we need people to help pass out performance programs, direct traffic, and staff a number of booths selling raffle tickets, beverages, T-shirts and berets.
It’s an opportunity to help out with a fundraising project without opening your wallet! You will have fun, help out a couple of great organizations and even get a cool French Festival T-shirt! This is your chance to find out just how fabulous you look in a beret! If you are interested in being part of the fun, email us and let us know which day you would like to work and what your time preference is. We are asking everyone to work for at least a two-hour shift.
If you can’t volunteer, you can still help us — tell your friends, neighbors and casual acquaintances that the festival is July 14-15 at Oak Park, 300 W. Alamar Ave., and then come on out and join in all the fun!
