Volunteer Kick-Off Meeting
Sunday, May 5
2:00 – 3:30 p.m.
Edison Main Library
340 Plainfield Avenue
The Friends of the Library Need Your Help!
As you know, we had to cancel our very popular town-wide Spelling Bee for 2013 because we did not have enough volunteers to help with the numerous planning and organizational activities that are needed. Determined to hold the event once more in spring 2014, we’ve come up with a fun and exciting way for you to help us achieve that goal.
On Sunday, May 5, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm, in the meeting room at the Edison Main Library, 340 Plainfield Ave. (directions), we will have a special Spelling Bee Volunteer Kick-Off Meeting. We are looking for people with all interests, abilities, and availability to help us plan and prepare for our 2014 Spelling Bee. Even if you can only offer us a small amount of time from home, we’d love to see you at our kick-off event. Everyone is welcome. You do not need to be a Friends member to attend.
After a general introduction, you will be able to find out more about what is required for areas in which you may be interested. Organized somewhat like a job fair, we will have several tables with an experienced volunteer at each. They will explain the many activities we need help with in such areas as publicity, prizes, sponsors, registration, volunteer organization, signage, logistics, programs, etc. The Friends of the Library will provide light refreshments.
If you have any questions, or if you are unable to attend but would still like to help in some way, please e-mail us at FOLEdisonNJ@gmail.com or call Graham at 732-738-4586.
