Job Descriptions

 
  • Hanging: We will have the cables pre-hung. Volunteers will work in teams with committee members and parks and recreation staff members to clothes pin quilts on the line prior to the start of the event at 9 a.m. These volunteers will meet at the Chamber of Commerce at 7 a.m. to pick up shopping baskets filled with quilts that are designated to be hung in specific areas.
  • Guarding: Once the quilts have been hung volunteers from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. will be given boxes of gloves to offer to the public that may be interested in touching quilts to avoid getting the quilts dirty. These individuals will also be briefed on the event schedule and purchasing procedures so they can point event participants to the appropriate resources if they are asked questions that they may not know the answer to.
  • Taking Down: Reverse of the hanging job. At 4 p.m. these volunteers will meet at the Chamber of Commerce to pick up baskets and will work in teams to remove the quilts from the lines, fold them (being sure that the ID tag is facing out) and re-bagging the quilts to return to "Home Base" at the Chamber of Commerce where they will be checked in and resorted in numeric order. We will not be returning quilts to their owners until every quilt has been checked back in from the lines.
