For a number of years RVP has operated a Beer Booth (including wine, and a few alcohol-free beverages, sodas, juices and water) at the Marin County Fair. This is a major and very important fundraising effort for the Players. A few people do the hard work of setting up, ordering and receiving goods to sell, and arranging staff assignments. There is a Responsible Beverage Service training required to work in any of the booths selling alcohol; a photo badge is issued at its completion.
We ask people on our regular house staffing lists, as well as board members and backstage personnel to work a shift at the Fair. This year we are looking to our broader community of supporters for new volunteers to HELP US in the Booth.
Please contact Eleanor Prugh to explore your interest further. Some details follow:

You will be registered for the training after choosing your shift to work and your training date. Contact Eleanor.
For each day you volunteer to take a shift, you will receive from RVP a pass to the FAIR. And, OH, besides its “bottom-line” importance and the fact that it’s a bit of work, it can also be a LOT OF FUN. Please consider helping and decide affirmatively as soon as possible!! THANK YOU.
Note that there are no special arrangements for parking for people who work at the Fair.
