PRIDE weekend is coming up fast, and we need to once again have people
sign up to take a shift at the pride booth. (Sunday, July 31)
Ideally we like to see 2 people assigned to be at the booth at a time,
for 1-hour long shifts, so that nobody is left on their own nor has to
stick around for a long time when they’d rather be watching the parade
or exploring the festival. We need somebody present at the booth at
all times from set-up to take-down, so please, if you are going to be
in town, sign up to take a shift so we can make sure we are covered.
Being at PRIDE is great for our visibility and we usually get several
expressions of interest and a couple of new members each year out of
it, so please help us spread the word about how great it is to be part
of Out in Harmony.
What we need:
MORNING SHIFTS = 9-noon: Set up is usually 8:30 or 9. There are very
few people to hand out info to since the festival probably won’t open
until 11:30, but there are some fellow-venders wandering around.
DURING PARADE SHIFTS = Noon to 3pm: Traffic tends to be fairly light,
but picking up. It is nice to have several folks signed up for this
period so we can take turns watching both the parade and the booth.
MAIN FESTIVAL SHIFTS = 4-6pm: This is the busiest time for passing
out info about the choir. Take down will probably be 6:30.
