LPWA will have a booth and we need volunteers. We'll need a few to help set up at 8am Saturday, crews to work thru both days, and a few to help take down on Sun night at 8pm.
Vans Warped Tour! August 15
This is a fabulous day long music festival! Lots of fun, all day long, with the opportunity to work an outreach booth. We need 3-5 young, high energy, committed volunteers for this gig. At least one needs to be a driver, with a station wagon or small truck to carry the gear.
We need to put this team together this week, or we won't be able to do it.
The Olympia Hemp Love and Freedom Rally 2009 August 22-23
