I can go into details on numbers of tasks needed to be accomplished for a successful Car Show; the
low number of volunteers we have to date signed up; and the fact we have a lot to accomplish for
the Show. People say members will appear on Show Day to work, don’t worry!

Well, that hasn’t happened the last two shows!

At this time including; Board Members, their families and those who signed the book at the meeting,

we have commitments from about 15% of our total membership to work the Car Show! That’s no-
where near enough. Go through the list of tasks below find something you feel you can do to help

make the show a success. Call one of the Board Members to add your name to the list for that activ-
ity. We will also be sending out a broadcast email to the entire membership with a similar request.

The following are the tasks needing workers. Find what you are willing to and would like to do to

make OUR show a success this year.

Volunteer and help make this a great show for Fords Unlimited and the Charities we help through

the year! Thank you!

About the Club
