Call for Volunteers!

Our next rally is planned for September 25th from 1:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon. We want to make this rally the biggest and best one yet, and it's time to ask our wonderful volunteers to step forward and help us make it happen!
There's something for everyone, and here is a list where volunteers are most needed:
Kids Activities - There are lots of moms out there who have planned birthday parties for their kids, and we need your expertise.  We need some fun activities for the little ones, and the not so little ones.  We need a committee and someone to lead it.
Parking - If you look hot in orange, we have a vest for you!  We need a parking crew.
Decorating - If you have a creative flair, the decorating is a lot of fun.  We have some supplies and some ideas to decorate the stage.  We need people to put up the decorations, blow up helium balloons, and just make the staging area look nice and patriotic.  We need someone to head up this committee and volunteers to bring it all together.
Sound and Electrical - We need a sound system and a few handy people to get it up and running, including getting the electrical connections safely in place.  Anybody with a sound system, please consider letting us use it with your supervision.
Flyer Brigade - We need some energetic people to get out in the weeks leading up to the rally to get some flyers posted.  We will be asking the city's permission to post our flyers on light poles and public utility boxes.  We will also be asking businesses and churches to post our flyers in their windows or on their bulletin boards.  We need people to make sure the flyers get posted and to make sure they are taken down after the rally.
Candidate Guide - We need some people to do a little research on the candidates so we can create a candidate guide to hand out at the rally.  It's pretty simple and may only require a visit to the candidate's website or a phone call to their campaign headquarters.  We want to know where each candidate stands on a list of about nine or ten issues.  You could probably do the research on four or five candidates in one afternoon.  
Dot Brigade - We have a volunteer who has stepped up to lead this activity and we need some volunteers at the rally to get people counted with sticker dots.  
Water Station - We can't sell any food or drinks at this rally due to city regulations, but we do plan to have a water station where we can give out bottled water in exchange for small donations.  We need people to work at this station and we need people willing to lend us their ice chests.  We also need donations of bottled water...lots and lots of bottled water, and ice on the day of the rally.   
In addition to volunteers, we also need a few other things:
A boom truck for our banner, a set of sturdy portable steps for the stage, mobile home steps or something similar.
Remember, YOU are the Tea Party and this is YOUR rally!  Even if you can't physically volunteer, your ideas and suggestions are welcome.  And, of course, any cash donations would be very helpful.
