Volunteers needed for Aug. 15 Tour de Art

August 7, 2009

Virginia Kaczmarek of the YMCA sent me this info. Help is needed this Saturday, Aug. 15, for the Tour de Art / Ride with the Mayors! Please let her know if you can help.

Hi Bill, It looks like we need 2 more volunteers for the Dundas Trailhead location so yes I’d love for you to send out an email asking for some help.

I’d guess those volunteers would need to be at that location by 10:00 – the group should be by sometime after that time. Once the group comes by — (they head back to Northfield along the trail) — then the volunteers are done — so maybe 10-11:15 or so? Their job would be to put streamers and ribbons on the kid’s bikes while the adults listen to the ‘art sculpture’ expert talk to the parents about the art sculpture at that location. My Y email address is virginia@northfieldymca.org.

There’s a flier about the entire event on the front page of our website (Mary Rossing put it together).
