      I honestly don't know who is showing up Lisa but based on who has said yes to me, it was just you & Donna. If it's only you, then yes, we have room for her for sure.

    • Jeff S.

      Hi, promise I'm not trying to be argumentative. If you look to the right where the registration of helpers are, it shows you "+4". That can't happen without you doing it that way. When you sign up to do an event, you are either only doing it for yourself or if you are bringing others to help. I won't remove the "+4" so you can see what I'm talking about. Thanks!!!

      September 13

  • Jeff S.

    Donia, Donna Thacker has to unfortunately cancel due to a family emergency.

    September 12

  • Donia L.

    No worries, Nashia. Thanks for letting me know.

  • Donia L.

    Thanks again, everyone, for giving of your time, energy, and talent for Via Colori. Those of you who have messaged me and/or submitted your times to work through the www.viacolorikentucky.com site should've heard from me via email. If you haven't heard from me or if you haven't verified your time with me, please contact me at [masked].

    Hi Donia & Jeff! I am having car troubles again and won't be able to make the event tomorrow morning :-(

    September 12

  • Donia L.

    Thanks to everyone who's volunteering THIS SATURDAY at Via Colori. (I'm getting excited and more than a little nervous!) I have some check-in and parking information for you.
    Please check in at the artist/volunteer booth. It will be located on the square, facing North Main Street, on the north side of the old courthouse. Dee Goodman will be the person you'll need to see. She'll be dressed as Wonder Woman (no lie!). I have a booth that day that will be on the other side of the courthouse almost opposite the check-in booth. If you have time, please pop over and introduce yourselves. I'd love to meet all of you and thank you in person.
    Free parking will be available behind Cobblers Cafe. Some of the streets downtown will be closed for the event. If you need directions, help getting around, or have questions, call or text me at[masked]-3642.
    Again, thanks to all of you!
    Donia

    Via Colori has added a theme to the event. They are encouraging us (totally optional) to dress in a superhero costume.

    July 14

  • Lisa R.

    Signed up w the 8-11pm ... Even though the shift Jeff listed was 9-11pm ... Kinda confusing

    1 · May 18

    • Jeff S.

      You can "make your own" shift as well. Am sure they'll find stuff for us to do when we get there and if not, we'll check out the place first. ;) Thanks Lisa!

      May 19

  • Jeff S.

    I am signed up for 8-11 pm on 9/13 and happy to drive anyone else who wants to work the last shift.

    May 18

  • Lisa R.

    Would love to carpool to this event. Anyone interested in meeting somewhere in the Ville?

    May 9

    • Lisa R.

      Sounds great Donna. Flexible on time ... Do either of u have a preference?

      May 14

    • Jeff S.

    1 · May 13

    • Jeff S.

      That is wonderful Edith Mae! I have asked the employee in E'town a couple of times to set a shift schedule and get back to me. I know she's been very busy and hasn't yet done so. Even though I reminded her about this a couple days ago, can do so again. :)

      May 14

    • Jeff S.

      P. S. If you do sign up for this, make sure you list the time of your shift and how many people you're bringing with you as part of your RSVP.
