Herrin Emeludt Haensler, Known World Children's Fete Coordinator, Pennsic 40, is seeking volunteers for the Fête to take place August 10, 2011 from 1:00-4:00 pm. Come make a child happy at Pennsic 40!
Seeking Fighters, Volunteers, and/or Sponsors for the Known World Children's Fête - Pennsic 40
We are seeking the help of fighters, volunteers, and/or activity sponsors for this years Known World Children's Fête at Pennsic. The Fête will be on August 10, 2011 from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Barn. Can you sing a song, dance a jig, fight with a foam sword, paint a face, smile and laugh a lot, color a picture, have fun or any sort of other activities? Then we could use you.
We are truly in need of individuals or groups that can offer their time to run and/or sponsor activities (arts and crafts, games, dancing, supplies, prizes, etc.). Some of the popular activities are:
- Face painting
- Foam sword play
We are also looking for volunteers to:
- Assist with the sign-in for the children.
- Persons to help ensure the other volunteers and fighters at the foam sword play are getting water and other refreshments
- Fete security to ensure registration/sign-in and safety.
- Assistance with set-up and/or break-down.
We REALLY, REALLY need fighters to rotate in/out and assist with the foam sword fighting with the kids! I can honestly say the kids got a huge kick out of "beating" his Majesty of Caid last year and it would be wonderful to see more of our fighters come out and just offer a few minutes of time to put a smile on the face of a young child.
You do not have to be there for the entire 3 hours... but any help you may offer would be greatly appreciated. Last year we had approx. 400 children in attendance, and we expected higher numbers this year for Pennsic 40! The Fête is great fun. If you want action and excitement, this is the place for you!
If you cannot physically volunteer at the Fête but you, your household, Barony or local group would still like to help in some way... maybe sponsoring an activity will be the best way for you to assist us in having a wonderful Fête.
Please continue to encourage and promote participation in the Children's Fête! If you will be at Pennsic, but you had not previously volunteered with the Children's Fête this year, we are asking you to please reconsider. We would love to show the support of all Atlantians - and SCAdians as a whole, at the fête this year.
Thank you for your time, effort and consideration in this matter and the fête as a whole! Please contact me offline if you are interested in volunteering or sponsoring and activity please contact me at: eme.hansler AT gmail.com for more details.
