The focus of the event will be a variety show with a number of different musical, dance and other performing arts acts. There will also be booths from a variety of different community organizations.

We need 5 volunteers for the concession stand, 8 volunteers for children games and crafts, 2 volunteers to help set up and take down tents, and 1 volunteer who can sit with the Ioco Heritage photo display. We also need 12 volunteers with a dramatic spirit to participate in our heritage fashion show. Participants will be provided costumes appropriate to Ioco heritage. Please let me know if you are interested in helping out.

Thank you,
