Volunteer at the Harvest Home Fair!

MtgInvite-May-01.jpg

The Harvest Home Fair is a tradition older than Cheviot itself, and it's going to take the community coming together to keep it going for generations to come!  We meet the 2nd Thursday of each month at the Harvest Home Park Lodge at 6:30pm to plan the fair!

It takes a LOT of volunteers to make the Harvest Home Fair happen every year and we always need new people to help out! We need people to be part of the planning process, chairing committees as well as people to work the parade and fair. It's a lot of fun and volunteers get free entry to the fair, we also offer service hours and have many fundraising opportunities for local non-profits. Keep  scrolling to find out out about all the ways you can help out at this years fair!

Volunteers that helping with setup on Wednesday are welcome to attend the kick-off luncheon that will be catered this year by Maury's Tiny Cove. The luncheon is held inside the Lodge at noon. On Thursday volunteer lunch is provided by BLOC Ministries.  We want to share a special thank you to BLOC Ministries for feeding the volunteers and being a big part of our annual tradition!

Gate / Parking Volunteers

We're looking for volunteers to cover the parking gates and guest entrances to the fair. Since these volunteers are dealing with cash, we're asking for volunteers that are Harvest Home Association or Kiwanis members, family & friends or are members of local community organizations that participate with the fair. Please show up 15 minutes before your shift starts.
