Participating in 1st GJ Farmers Market

Would you like to help our local community learn more about Humanism and all the great things Humanists Doing Good has done? Would you like to help us carry out good deeds in our community and encourage people to fund things like gifts to people in nursing homes? For the first time, we'll have a presence at the Grand Junction Farmers Market. We'll have posters showing our past events, information from the American Humanist Association and will be allowing the public to fund good deeds via donations. We are seeking volunteers to answer questions, engage with the public and to help set up and take down our materials for the event. Our participation in events like this is a major portion of our community outreach for the year and helps spread awareness of the nonreligious community. Please contact us if you are willing to volunteer or if you have additional ideas for our booth. We can accept donations, but will not be selling merchandise at this event.

If you have a volunteer shirt to wear for this event, please do so. If you do not, we may be able to provide one for you for the duration of the event.

HDG Booth Location: #618 near the Avalon Theater

3:30 pm - Wade & Jesse to setup booth
4:30 pm - They want everything ready at this time
5:00 pm - Laura, Jesse, Wade, Robert (may be a little late)

    A schedule for the event has been added. Please look it over and let me know if you see any potential problems. You may want to bring your own camp chair and snacks/drinks.

      Would it work for you to maybe stop by around 6:00 pm or so to provide relief so that others can grab a bit to eat, take a break, etc.?

    Off to Vegas to see my Godmother with an award. Sorry I can't be there to help.

    Laura, you can feel free to bring anything you would like to snack on or drink. The market isn't terribly lengthy compared to events like the Bluegrass Festival, but it does span the usual dinner time. Our booth will be located in front of the Avalon Theater (#618 on the south side of the street). We will have a 10x10 canopy. You're more than welcome to bring your camp chair. Would you mind RSVP'ing on this event to help Velvet keep track of people. Thanks!

    What should I bring for us to drink and snack on? Do we have a cover over our heads or should I wear a hat? Can I bring my camp chair in case I need to sit?
