EXPERIENCE– that is what drives a man like me, to contribute my time and efforts into a non-profit, community-based group that is branding itself to be an effective part of youthful growth in the arts, sciences and cultural interests locally.
I believe we owe people positive community experiences – which help contribute toward a desire to have a long-term relationship with living in an area.
People, always pull up an experience to put with a subjective word or name or question. Say Parker and the living experience of Parker becomes the descriptor. Say Parker Days, and the same thing will happen. The desired outcome for an experience should then always be a pleasant, fun and positive one. That is what we are shooting for in our fundraising cultural event, Parker Oktoberfest.
My piece in helping this festival continue to grow into a fun and memorable experience, is in the growth of our family center. This year,we have a competition stage for kids and adults and a play area for tykes to teenagers who want to experience the fun and prizes in midway like skill challenges, artistic fun etc… All things said… a fun experience.
This is where we are challenged.
Quite frankly, I am falling short on only one aspect of creating a better experience for families and kids in this area. Volunteers to help create the fun experience we want each to have. We are one week away, and can use some help in this family center only.
2-4 or 4+ hour shifts. Overseeing, interacting with kids who want to try the ring toss, climbing jacobs ladder, picking up ducks in the duck pond, doing spin art, throwing darts, striking the hammer slammer bell and things like that. Your chance to be a carny!
We have reached out on a lot of levels for this year’s event … we have youth groups running our beverage booths as their fundraisers, greeters, students helping with set-up, being our costumed chickens… etc…
Please consider signing up with us for either a Saturday or Sunday shift or two and help contribute to a wonderful experience opportunity with the youth in our area. – It really feels fulfilling at the end of the day. And, we have added a LOT of tents and seating this year for breaks!
Please message below and I will PM you right away to get you lined up.
It comes with a t-shirt, beverage and at times food, but most importantly … your own experience. Thank you kindly.
