Summer is just around the corner, and I would like to update you on some summer events as well as a few events between now and June 15th
Island County Fair: Last year we partnered with folks from South Whidbey Assembly to run the Burger and Curly Fry booth at the fair. The booth was highly successful, raising $5000 for ICA on top of the $5000 check we wrote to Good Cheer! We have the same opportunity this year, so we are looking for more ICA parents and students to sign up to help fill out the 70+ shifts that are required. Thank you to those who have already contacted me!
Here are the details:
We supply your entry ticket into the fair the day you work. Hours worked can also count toward volunteer hours for this year or next year.
Shifts are Thursday through Sunday, July 20th-23rd, 9:30-4:00 pm or 4:00 – 10:15 pm. Each shift requires 9 people to cover all the jobs. We will also need help Wednesday the 19thfor set up and Monday the 24th during the day for clean-up.
Many people who helped last year liked the busy yet fun-filled atmosphere, and enjoyed making some new acquaintances. Please call the office if you would like to be called when we start making the schedule!
July 3rd Face Painting – Each year ICA provides face painting for the 3rd of July event at Freeland Park. Shifts begin at 3 pm and continue until 7:00 pm. Our junior and senior high students often man the booth, but we would welcome parent volunteers as well! Training provided.
