We Need Volunteers for the Fall Show!
Sign Up Now to Help!

Hi all.  I am asking everyone to help by volunteering at the show.  Please do not wait till the last minute to sign up.  Everyone needs to be involved so our show is successful as we lost revenue last year because it was cancelled so this year is VERY important to the club.  I need a volunteer to help chair the kids area and people to volunteer for shifts in all areas:  ticket booth, information booth, kids area, flume, volunteer dinner and fossil dig.  If we all do a little bit, no one is overwhelmed.  Thank you in advance for helping.  Also I want to thank the few people who have already signed up.  I really appreciate you!  Remember our Fall show is October 8th -10th.  Please contact me by email, or call my home phone 256-837-6819.  Please leave a message as I don’t answer calls from numbers I do not know.  I will also be at the HGMS meeting with sign up sheets if you prefer that.

The following committees have chairs, but they need workers:

Set up – Lowell
Ticket booth – Nannette Schwartz
Flume – Gene Powers
Information booth – Bill Friday
Fossil Dig – James Yack
Demonstrations – Shelley Curran and Kathy Bowman
Kids Area – HELP!
Volunteer dinner – Caryl Nixon has agreed to call the caterers.

Thanks, Theresa Chivers
