Did you know over 200 volunteers are needed to host the Orono Fair? Last Wednesday the Orono Fair Board hosted a volunteer ‘Meet and Greet” BBQ at the new office (portable) of the Orono Agricultural Society. We are getting close to Opening Day – Thursday, September 8. Many hands are needed – big or small. Can you spare a few hours of your day? Set-up Day – Labour Day, Monday, September 5, 9 a.m., BBQ lunch will be provided. During the Fair hours September 8 – 11, hands for big and small jobs. Tear down Sunday, September 11 at 4 p.m. and clean-up day Monday, September 12 at 10 a.m. Adult volunteers are needed on the gates Friday night between 6-8:30 p.m. Students are welcome for volunteer hours. Livestock Lane/Ag Education could use a few more volunteers who know their animals. Any day or time you can give is very much appreciated. Each volunteer shift is four hours – sign up for as many as you like. To sign up, send an email to [email protected] or call 905-983-9510. After two years, this is a wonderful way to reconnect with friends and meet new ones.
