Volunteers will be helping with soft drink sales on September 5th and 6th, as well as the Adventure Zone Kids’ Area on September 6th, at McGregor Park. Any interested organizations should contact Bethany Benjamin at 931.645.7476 or to participate.

In order to be eligible for the $500.00 prize, volunteers must abide the following criteria:

Volunteers must sign in with the volunteer coordinator the day-of the event, work their scheduled hours and sign out after their shift in order for their hours to count towards the contest.

If a volunteer representative of an organization does not show for their designated time slot, that organization will automatically be disqualified from the contest.

Representatives will receive credit for the hours they are present and working, so organizations should encourage timeliness.

All drink booth volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and all Adventure Zone volunteers must be at least 16 years of age. The winner of the contest will be announced September 10th.
