There will be live music and dance, beer from City Beverage, and lots of fun and games for kids and adults alike.  The event is free and open to all WFU students, faculty and staff, and their families.

Volunteers are needed for a wide variety of fun and important jobs, including:

  • Face painting
  • Making bird feeders & coloring
  • Helping with event passports and raffle tickets
  • Recycling station management
  • Merchandise sales
  • Tent and booth setup

Volunteers are needed from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Chipotle burritos will be provided for lunch for volunteers. Please sign up for your hour-long shift on this spreadsheet. Feel free to sign up for as many hours as you want.

Donations of half-gallon paper milk or juice cartons for kids crafts are also needed. Please bring your rinsed cartons to the Office of Sustainability, Reynolda Hall, Room 101, before Friday.
