SET-UP AND TEAR-DOWN
Wednesday, September 13
from 8:30 am to 2 pm.
We will need 50 able-bodied volunteers (many hands make lite work) to unload the truck, erect the frame, and build the wall (some slabs weigh 80 pounds). Volunteers must sign up for the entire time slot. Refreshments will be provided. Unfortunately, we will not be able to meet any specific dietary needs.
The public display time will end at 2 pm on Sunday, September 17th with tear-down to take place from 2 pm to UTC.
Again, 30-35 able-bodied volunteers needed to dismantle the exhibit and carefully pack the truck. Volunteers must sign-up for the entire time slot.
Call 315-253-1281 #5 (Kevin Swab) for more information or if you need help signing up
