Hi, its that time of year again! Almost… As you may or may not know I am the First Nation’s volunteer coordinator for the annual UW Spring Powwow, the largest student run event all year, yes we are very proud of that 🙂 BUT it would not at all be possible without the help of usually over one hundred volunteers-we can use all the help we can get! So please take the time to consider coming down to help us out for a few hours… over the course of the three days we put the event on. I will provide you with a link that will take you to an eight question survey sign up that will give you all of the information you will probably need and if not you can always message me on facebook or email me. Even if you can’t make it because you don’t have the time or may not be in the area, please forward the link to someone you may know who can make it to the Powwow.
Some of the duties we need help with: These are the big ones, making fry bread dough in the kitchen, frying the bread in the fry room, selling the bread and Indian and Alaskan Native tacos at the concession stand. Other various jobs are being a MIC holder for the drum groups, hanging out with kids in the side gymnasium, selling shirts, or maybe even helping me with volunteer coordination. Also the first and last days of the Powwow vendors who might be getting up there in mileage if you know what I mean, might need a little help unloading and loading their inventory because they don’t get around as good as they used to. Please come help us out!
And if you cannot, please pass this event invitation or my email address along to somebody who can, thank you
