The BBA needs volunteers early on Saturday morning, September 30, to help with vendor unloading and set up; throughout the day to assist with children’s activities, petting zoo, drink sales, etc.; and later in the afternoon to help vendors pack up and for general cleanup of the site.  Home Depot has donated hand trucks and dolly carts to move the heavy items, so while there is some physical labor involved.   While we will take any volunteer assistance, we would prefer to book students in 2-3 hour blocks of time, beginning Saturday morning at 7:00 a.m. and ending at 6:00 p.m.  We have created a page at Sign Up Genius to make it easier for students.  Here is a link.
