New to the city of Owen Sound, new to the role of volunteer coordinator for the Canada 150/Owen Sound 160 anniversaries, I was given three weeks and a near-impossible task.
Now, with 7 short days to go, we are desperately seeking volunteers to help throw a celebration of our beautiful 160-year-old city. Between June 30th and July 10th, 11:30am to 11:30 pm we still need volunteers in the following numbers and areas:

35 gate attendants
25 set-up and tear-down crew
20 ambassadors
10 children's area supervisors
40 site assistants
10 stage assistants
20 Green Team

I am hopeful that 160 individuals will step forward to support this signature summer event. One person for each of Owen Sound's 160 years.

Please reply with what position(s) and time(s) you can donate your time. Please tell your family, friends and colleagues. Like, share, retweet, forward. Teenagers! We can help them with ALL 40 of their required volunteer hours.

I know this is asking a lot from people to take time away from busy family weekends. But, how great would it be that our 160th anniversary is marked with a tremendous display of generosity through volunteerism, which just so happens to be a central theme of Canada's 150th anniversary.
Will you be part of it?
