Yes, you! We are looking for fun-loving volunteers for our daytime, afternoon and evening shifts to help make the second annual Port Moody RibFest an even bigger success than the first! Although not required, we are also looking for some individuals that have their 'Serving It Right' and 'Food Safe' certifications to work in our beverage garden.
Volunteering with a group is a great way to build spirit and promote your organization. As RibFest for 2016 will be an even larger event than last year, we would love to have some blocks of volunteers from different community groups to cover off specific areas of our event. Gather together your sports team, community organization, neighborhood association, or even just a group of friends and register to volunteer together!
Volunteer roles include; Setup, General Labour, Hosting, Refreshment Server, Rib Runner, Guest Services, Children's Activities, Security and more. When you register, please mark which positions you are interested in, and we will try to match your interests with your skills.
This fun community event will take place over 3 days this summer from July 22 to July 24, 2016. Most volunteer shifts are three hours in duration, and we would greatly appreciate it if our volunteers are able to sign up for multiple shifts.
All volunteers will be required to complete one brief training session in the weeks leading up to the event. The event itself takes place at Rocky Point Park.
With proceeds from the event going back into the community through donations, The Rotary Club of Port Moody hopes to staff the event with as many volunteers as possible. Event organizers are hoping to raise upwards of $50,000 which will go directly back into numerous community programs that the Club supports. The Rotary Club of Port Moody currently provides well over $50,000 annually back into the community through organizations such as SHARE Family & Community Services, Eagle Ridge Manor, the Mossom Creek Hatchery and many, many more!
All volunteers will receive training at an orientation session, a Volunteer T-Shirt and an opportunity to be part of a widely successful event. If you are a student, your volunteer time at RibFest could count towards your volunteer hours for graduation - we would be happy to provide a letter acknowledging the donation of your time.
