VOLUNTEERS ARE VITAL
**PLEASE CONSIDER BEING ONE **
(p.s…the t-shirts are really cool this year, too!)
Volunteers are a vital component in making the 2013 Earth Day Celebration a success! While there are numerous vendors, exhibitors, entertainers, and activity leaders, they need the support of volunteers to ensure that the day is enjoyable for everyone.
Volunteers are asked to commit to 3 hours of volunteering during the course of the day. With this commitment, volunteers will receive a complementary T-shirt to wear during your shift and keep. Volunteers will also be provided with lunch. Volunteers are expected to arrive at least 10 minutes before their shift to check-in at the Volunteer Tent and get their T-shirt. Volunteers are also expected to work for the full duration they have committed to serving. Volunteers are expected to act in a mature and responsible manner, as they represent both the Town of Woodbury and New Morning Market.
If you are thinking about volunteering, please read the descriptions below to decide which role would best suit your interests and abilities.

Volunteers are needed to help with set-up and break-down of this area, and to lead craft projects throughout the Celebration.
