Gentlemen (& Ladies),
I am the Volunteer Coordinator & Co-Chair for the Germantown Oktoberfest. The Location for 2013 will once again be at High Point Farm in Clarksburg, Maryland (23730 Frederick Road, Clarksburg, MD 20871) & will take place from 10:00 am -6:00pm, October 5, 2013. I am soliciting your help in obtaining Scouts from your Troop for this Event to direct Traffic & Park Cars. The use of this Location will mean that 100% of the Attendees will be Driving to the Event. As was the case last year there will be no Bus Transportation. This makes the need for Scouts to do the Parking that much more important.
Any & All Scouts/Student Volunteers are welcome and will receive credit for Community Service Hours. This can be used for Citizenship Badges or Other requirements (at the Scoutmaster's discretion) or for required School Service Hours. However, for Traffic Control I am looking for Scouts approximately 13-18 years old. This can be either for Scout Badges (at your discretion) or SSL Hours for School. I have also made some changes to the Schedule. The schedule for Parking Volunteers that will be as follows: 1st shift will be 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. The 2nd shift will be from 2:00pm- 6:00 pm. I will need Scouts (in Class A Uniform, Uniform Shorts or comparable Shorts perfectly acceptable). I would also advise Hats as well.
Also, Scouts under 16 years of age will need a Permission Slip signed by a Parent/Guardian & I have attached that form. I have also attached a Flier you can post at Troop Meetings or at Schools.
I am available to come to Scout Troop Meetings to discuss this matter w/Scouts/Scouters.
I look forward to participation from your Troops at the 2013 Oktoberfest.
I can be reached at this E-mail or at 301-529-4224.
I thank you for your participation,
Co-Chair Volunteer Coordinator
