Calling all volunteers!!

Without volunteers, the SCA Carnival would not be possible. It is going strong into its 35th year and we would like to be able to continue the success. Our dedicated committee coordinators have begun their recruitment to fill all shifts needed to run the carnival- from serving food, to selling ride tickets, encouraging patrons to take a chance on paddles or pull tabs, or serving beer- all areas need volunteer support. We hope that you have already signed up to work a shift (or two) at the 2017 Carnival, but if you have not, please email thompson_3@att.net and we will connect you with a volunteer opportunity.

We do ask our volunteers to consider the following to help insure our financial success and maximize financial support to the SCA school and parish:

-Use the coupon provided by your committee coordinator to enjoy a complimentary hot dog, brat, beef/sausage sandwich, cheeseburger, or slice of pizza.  Draft beer will also be available to you during your shift; however, once your shift is over, we kindly ask that you purchase beer tickets.

-Please do not offer free food or beverage to any individuals.

– Please keep your eye out on the midway and report any suspicious behaviors or persons to Security right away.

We hope to see you June 7-11!!
