State Fair Volunteers Needed! 5/1/13


It is that time of year again to plan Sierra County’s exhibit for the California State Fair at  Cal Expo in Sacramento.  This year’s theme is Food * Family * Fun.  The fair dates  are July 12th through July 28th.   The fair hours are Monday-Thursday 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Friday-Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. We are able to move in our materials and start building on June 20th.

We are in need of volunteers to help build and assemble the exhibit starting June 20th and breaking down the exhibit and hauling materials away from the exhibit on July 28th.  Staffing of the exhibit from July 12th through July 28th  is also needed.  Building and assembling the exhibit would involve construction, painting and placing the materials within the exhibit. Some of the building and painting could be done offsite, possibly somewhere here in Sierra County, and then transported to Sacramento.  Staffing the exhibit would involve volunteers sitting at the booth, handing out materials, and talking to people about all the wonderful places and things to do in Sierra County.  We are asking that volunteers who staff the booth take shifts from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Monday-Thursday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. on Friday-Sunday.

Your participation will help make our county exhibit exceptional and make our county proud!  In the past, there has been very positive feedback from State Fair Officials who have observed how hard our county works and such great pride we take in putting the exhibit together and staffing it with such enthusiastic volunteers.  So, let’s make it another exciting and successful year!
