Need volunteers

ABC is looking for people to help out at the Summer Fest on June 4th and 5th. Have a little time you can spend? There are many different ways you and your family can volunteer to help out such as staffing booths, selling tickets, checking water bowls, helping out with games, or cleaning and setting up. The Summer fest is two days and there will be a big turn out of dog lovers and their owners.
Do you know a vendor or another rescue group that might want to participate? You can contact Tom Rodwell, who is the coordinator for the ABC summerfest. trodwell@clearwire.net
