Volunteer for Ferndale Pride, First Meeting March 20pride2014ad

(Crystal Proxmire, March 17, 2014)

This year’s Ferndale Pride event will be Sat., May 31st, 1-10pm, downtown Ferndale with the theme “Gay in May.”

There are many tasks to be done including pre-planning, promoting, handing out posters and flyers, and fundraising at advance events.

Event Day, May 31st tasks include set up, moving tents and chairs, Volunteer check-in table, security, entrance greeters and asking for donations. The entertainment stage needs stage hands for errands, the performers parking area, move and secure equipment and DJ assistance.  The kids’ area will be covered by BTLWeddingExpo_144x360Blue Care Network staff BUT we sure need help with recycling / trash pickup.  They are looking for a Recycling Chair during the event hours, 1pm – 10pm.  Two or three people could split the shift.  Breaking down of the tents is also a very important task between 10pm and midnight.  Tasks are divided into short shifts so it is convenient for everyone’s schedule.

Volunteer Coordinator Monica Mills explained. “We are hard at work putting together Ferndale Pride 2014. One of the most important components of our event is the strength and passion of our volunteers.
