Volunteers Needed - Fall Vintage Market

  -- posted: 27 AUGUST 2016

The Post will be a vendor at the Fall Vintage Market on Saturday Oct. 8th. The Market will be from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. We will be serving our usual Hot Dogs, Fries, Brats with condiments as well as soft drinks & water. I need volunteers, so mark your calendars. This is a great opportunity for the Post to acquire much needed funds. We need to do these one-day enterprises in order to replace the 4 day effort of working the Fair. Cheryl Ketchum, Manager of Smithfield Market, expects 8000 people to attend this event. I will have more information as we get closer to the date.
