The Orillia Fairgrounds Market is in need of a few students who would like to volunteer their time to help at the Market.

 

They need one or two students who would like to run their Junior Farmers’ booth, where you would be interacting with children and encouraging them to do activities.Orillia Fairgrounds Farmers' Market.png

 

They are also looking for help with the Market set-up and/or tear-down.  This requires some lifting.  An OSS student started as a volunteer and has been hired there because of his hard work and dedication!!

 

The ideal scenario would be that the volunteers stay with the Market for the duration of the outdoor season (now until the end of October).  Remember to send a resume.

 

For contact information, check your school email account or drop by Guidance Services.
