Hi, Everyone.

Tim, our Organizer, would like you to read this message about VegFest, the annual event that brings thousands of vegetarians and vegans together in Novi each spring:


With only two weeks to go there are several openings for volunteers at VegFest.  We are expecting even more then the 4000 guests we had last year and need your help to make them welcome. 

Some of you helped last year and were (rightfully) upset that your job kept you from enjoying the event.  This event is as much for us (the members) as the public so I am assigning teams and shifts to no one should miss out on the fun, except those of us on the committee who have been and will be putting in crazy hours!.

As of the evening of Saturday 4/14 we need the following volunteers.  If you see something you are interested in please let me know or if you are willing to let the needs of the event rule, I will pick for you.

Thanks for your membership in VegMichigan and if you can help or not, I hope you are able to attend and enjob the event,
