From an Old Town Commercial Association press release….
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR OLD TOWN OKTOBERFEST!
Be a part of Mid-Michigan’s only authentic German festival and lend a helping hand to Old Town
OLD TOWN, LANSING, Mich. – The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp, and in Old Town, Lansing, that means the Old Town Commercial Association (OTCA) is planning the 2009 Oktoberfest.
Don’t miss out on a chance to be a part of Mid-Michigan’s only authentic German Oktoberfest, filled with music, great eats, and of course, German beer! The OTCA has more than 4,000 volunteers who help us make events like Oktoberfest a success, and allow Old Town to continue to thrive and grow as Lansing’s official arts district.
The OTCA needs YOU (and your friends) to help make this year’s Old Town Oktoberfest the best it can be through volunteering for one (or many) slots during the festival. Below are the time slots for the festival, which is on Friday, October 9th and Saturday, October 10th this year.
Volunteer slots on Friday, October 9, 2009 run from 5:30 p.m. – 8:15 p.m. and 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. On Saturday, October 10, 2009, the volunteer shifts run from 1:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m., 4:15 p.m. – 7:30 p.m., and 7:15 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Volunteers receive a unique Old Town Oktoberfest volunteer t-shirt and a discounted ticket in to the festival after their shift has been completed. Volunteers working more than two consecutive shifts may receive food voucher tickets.
Old Town Oktoberfest is an annual fund raiser that helps to fund the continued revitalization of Old Town, Lansing. All proceeds directly benefit the OTCA and its efforts. Old Town Oktoberfest would not be possible without great volunteers!
