SGS NEEDS 40 VOLUNTEERS
for the 2016
PACIFIC NORTHWEST SCOTTISH HIGHLAND GAMES
Saturday, July 30 & Sunday, July 31
Enumclaw Expo Center
- COME LISTEN TO THE BAGPIPES – WATCH THE DANCERS –
- VISIT THE CLANS – HELP SGS PROMOTE GENEALOGY -
We need volunteers to help at the Seattle Genealogical Society and Library booth during the Pacific Northwest Scottish Highland Games in Enumclaw. We have been participating for many years and it is a great way to let the public know about SGS and to promote membership. Our participation also gives us valuable community outreach credit for our grant applications with 4Culture which has resulted in thousands of dollars for our equipment and projects. Game attendance is about 30,000 for the weekend. Most of the people who come to the SGS booth don't have an understanding of their Scottish or Irish heritage and have not done any research. They primarily want to know two things:
1. "What clan do I belong to?"
2. "What tartan can I use?"
We need twenty volunteers for each day; two volunteers for each two hour session and three people during the peak afternoon hours. We will supply you with a free ticket for the games. Parking will be at your own expense at $7.00 per day. We encourage carpooling.
Please contact me before June 19th. Send along your name, email address, phone contact, age if you are over 62 and a time preference, if you have one.
