The Christmas festival committee truly appreciates everyone for volunteering! It takes a small village to put on this event and it has been a great success each year because of our incredible volunteers! The committee would like to once again, reach out to the entire membership and ask everyone to volunteer. It is crucial that all volunteer areas are filled, our committee members work long hours all year and we need all the volunteers possible to make sure the festival runs smoothly. The Christmas Festival is SAA's most profitable event and due to the cancellation last year it's extremely important this year's event is a success. All proceeds go to fund the Art Center operations and next year's festival. New members, it's your time to SHINE!
The volunteer positions are simple and a lot of fun to work! The only position that requires a bit of experience is the Santa photo ticket sales, where it would help if one is familiar with Square - Point of Sale and working an iPad. This position, along with the Santa Photo Monitor and Elf Corner volunteers are the most critical to fill. Kris Straukas - Festival Chair, is also looking for an Elf Corner Coordinator and Assistant Coordinator , as Shirley Jarvis, our coordinator for the past several years, had to step down due to health reasons. If you are willing to help fill these crucial positions, please contact Kris and get the full details about the position. Kris Straukas is willing to train anyone that considers taking these positions. It is extremely easy once you know a few basic steps. We ask everyone to volunteer at least one shift, but feel free to sign up for as many as you would like, some members volunteer the entire weekend. :) SAA members who have booth space will be able to set up their booths early if they volunteer on Friday - set up day or Sunday afternoon after the festival ends. Members that volunteer Friday late afternoon and evening have a sneak peak at all the vendor booths before opening day! ;)
Please feel free to contact Kris Straukas at 770-331-4408 if you have any questions. THANK YOU FOR VOLUNTEERING - The Festival Committee truly appreciates you!
