The Linn County Fair Really Needs Volunteers
If you're headed to the Linn County Fair this month to check out some of the fun events and activities, you might consider spending a few hours volunteering!
According to a new article from KCRG, the Linn County Fair in Central City is in desperate need of volunteers at this summer's fair. The event is scheduled for June 23rd through 27th, which is less than two weeks away. The article reads:
"Right now, they have a total of 471 volunteer slots for the 2021 fair, with each shift being about 4 hours of volunteering. Out of 471 slots, only 52 are filled from 12 volunteers."
The article goes on to say that there are organizations that are still a bit leery on volunteering, which is why there's such a big shortage right now. The volunteer positions that are open right now are:
- First Aid Station
- Gate Building Monitor
- Security - Grounds Roamer
- Shuttle Driver
- Cock-A-Doodle Zoo
- Lynn Dunn Memorial Building Host
- Beer Tent Entrance Monitor
- Grandstand Entrance Monitor
- Security- Grandstand
- Youth Day
- Grounds Beautification
- Grandstand Ticket Staff
- Grandstand Pit Entrance Ticket Takers
If you're interested in signing up for one of these positions, you can choose your dates and times online HERE. Volunteers who work at least four hours will get free t-shirt. You can also show up and decide to volunteer day-of. The Linn County Fair Association is prepared to make changes and step in to help out if there aren't enough volunteers, but hopefully things will work out!
