KIDS FUNFEST (June)
Click here to download the Kids Funfest Volunteer Form
The Kids Funfest Committee meets once a month to offer ideas and suggestions on activities for children by drawing from their experiences during their volunteer work, employment or educational opportunities.
Areas requiring input include promotion and advertising, sponsorship opportunities, activities and program suggestions, ideas for interested groups or individuals, the site plan and brochure, participation fees and much more.
As time and talent permits Committee members take on areas of responsibilities they are either familiar with or interested in taking on. Volunteers are also recruited from the community to help Committee members implement the Festival in June.
Volunteers from the Community are recruited to help Parks and Recreation staff host Hobbyfest which usually involves over 45 community groups coming together to display or demonstrate their hobby interests.
