We have been working on the Fern Show and have come up with something that will be of interest to all LAIFS members. As you all know, we completely depend of people volunteering to help us will all aspects of the show. Our biggest need is the week before the show and for the tear down afterwords.
This year for each two hours of volunteer time you will receive a special volunteer raffle ticket. We will hold the volunteer raffle at our July meeting. The more tickets you have from volunteering at, during or before the show... the more chances for you to win at the raffle. Prizes will include several great fern specimens from our growing area. Don Delano is donating a terrarium with a rare fern in it. We expect to add several more prizes to the list in the near future, so keep watching this space!
We are looking for as many members as possible to volunteer at least a few hours of their time helping LAIFS before, during and after the show. Most of us can do small jobs. The time you donate to the society is appreciated! We know that many of you work for a living and can't take time off. But maybe you could find a few hours to help. It is a lot of fun and can be very educational.
We REALLY need able bodied volunteers to help with construction and setup on Sunday, June 4, from 4 PM until 8 PM and again on Monday, June 5 from 8 AM until 8 PM. The more volunteers we have the quicker and easier the work will be for all of us. Another key time is Sunday, June 11 fom 4 PM until 10 PM. We need help taking down the booths and tables, and load plants into the truck to be returned to the owners.
You are needed! Some jobs require you to just sit at the entrance of Ayres Hall to remind visitors that there is a Plant Holding Booth. The Show area in Ayres Hall is off limits for people with purchased plants and bags. Call a chairperson noted below.
