Wanted: Volunteers!

This year’s Iowa State Fair theme is “Nothing Compares.”  So, as I am sitting at my desk thinking about how I want to tie that in with the BRF volunteers, I have come up with this…

This year nothing will compare to the Iowa State Fair Blue Ribbon Foundation volunteers that will be helping out at the Fair!  After being here for only two weeks, I have had the pleasure of meeting a handful of the BRF volunteers that have been with the Foundation, some for many many years.  Everyone has been so nice and very enthusiastic about volunteering.  I think that is great.  The giving of time and talents just because you want to takes special people.  Without our volunteers, we would not be able to give nearly as much back to the historic Iowa State Fairgrounds as we do now.

Hopefully now you want to learn more about becoming a BRF volunteer.  As of today, our online registration form is officially up and running, so you can go to http://www.blueribbonfoundation.org/ and click on the Volunteers tab that runs down the left-hand side of the page to sign up!  John Deere Financial volunteers, your registration form is also available online.  If you don’t know for sure if you want to volunteer yet, but want some information, feel free to email me at kristen@blueribbonfoundation.org or call me at 515.262.3111 ext. 679.  I will be happy to answer anyone’s questions!

Have a great weekend!
