Volunteers Needed – Grays Harbor County Fair

We need more volunteers!
Dates are from August 5th to 9th.
We need: Friday 10-2 and 6-10, Saturday 10-2 and 2-6 and Sunday 2-6 and 6-8.
General information: Passes and tickets will be held at the Pavilion parking lot at the will call. Volunteers should go there first to get passes and parking permits. Then they are free to park at the main parking (further west) as it would be closer to the Bee Booth. I've put in a message to Rod at the Fair Grounds since I can't find the link on their site for you to use.
