Fw: Help Needed Today for Festival Set up!!
- Hi Stan, thanks so much for helping me get the word out.
Warm bodies are in short supply today at the Raw Festival grounds. It's
11:30 am, I just spoke with John Checkal on the phone and he said that
they have 7 of 38 tents set up for the festival. For those who don't
know, this festival is almost entirely an outdoor event, with tents
being the entire physical structure to provide space for our classes
and vendors. Getting this part done on-time is crucial to the festival
getting off on the right foot.
If you have even just a couple of hours of your time to donate , it
will go a long way toward averting a crisis. And...it will go a long
way toward helping the all-volunteer staff of this festival feel
supported. They all work very very hard to put this event
together...the planning started last year! Meetings, phone calls,
conferences, more meetings...you get the picture. The set-up phase is
just the tip of the iceberg. It's folks like you and me, who come
together at this time to breathe life into the physical part of the
festival, that are indespensable.
The tents are easy to put up...but they take several people working
together to make it happen. You can get directions to the site at
www.rawfestival.com. Or you can call me, Jim, at 503-464-6029, or John
Checkal at 503-780-7427.
Thanks, and may you have an earth shattering experience at the festival
