Volunteers Needed
Help with the LRNow Fall Festival, October 12th

We are very excited that LRNow's 3rd Fall Festival will take place in conjunction with Virginia Beach's Golden Age Celebration.  Our Festival will be Saturday, October 12, from Noon - 5 PM, and it will be a fun family-friendly event.
Our beach party will feature eco-friendly craft vendors, fun and educational environmental displays, a children's treasure hunt and other beach games, a seafood market and delicious locally-sourced food.  You will also have the opportunity to explore Lynnhaven wetlands during a guided walk.  And this event is free and open to the public!

In order for all of this to happen, we need help from lots of volunteers.  The event would not be possible without the help of all of you.  As an extra token of our appreciation, each volunteer will receive a free LRNow Volunteer T-shirt the day of the event.  Thanks so much in advance!

We need volunteers in many different roles and several different time slots.  We see the various opportunities and sign up to help follow this link to  Sign-up Genius.   

Thanks for your help!
