Volunteer Opportunity: Germanfest

They will need 2 students to oversee the dessert area from approximately 5:30 to 9:00pm. This will including cutting/plating desserts and making sure the dessert area is filled. They will need 204 students to act as greeters that will take tickets, assist with seating and watch the front door/tent from approximately 5:30 to 11pm. Volunteers can work the whole time slot or can break it into shifts. The timeframe may be cut down to 8 or 9pm once they can confirm that the Mecosta County Sheriff’s group can cover the entrance. They will also need 2-6 students on September 16th to assist with taking down tables/chairs, lights, and decorations from approximately 9:00am to 12:00pm.
