Putting on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS Fair takes a lot of hard
work—and we wouldn’t be anywhere without the help of all of our wonderful
volunteers! For the 2011 Seven Springs Fair, more than 130 hard-working
individuals donated their valuable time to help us set up, tear down and ensure
that the fair ran smoothly. And best of all, they did it with big smiles and
To everyone who helped volunteer this year, we’d like to
offer a huge “THANKS”! Your help is greatly appreciated. We couldn’t have done
it without you!
This "Green Team" volunteer helped fair goers correctly sort their waste into the correct bins—a "dirty job," but one done with a big smile!
Some volunteers helped presentations to run smoothly (and start and end on time!) at the various stages.
Other volunteers helped fair goers find the presentations and booths they most wanted to see!
If you’re interested in volunteering for future fairs,
we’ll start sharing information about three months in advance. Volunteers
receive a free ticket to the fair, a t-shirt, snacks and drinks throughout the
day—as well as the appreciation of all of us at MOTHER EARTH NEWS!
An extra-big thanks goes out to all the volunteers who helped clean up after the Fair. (Nick Yorty, your pallet-packin' skills were very much appreciated!)
