Call for Volunteers for Old Bedford Village Event

To All Commanders, Military, and Civilians:

Please forward this to those planning to attend the June 18-20, 2010, event at Old Bedford Village.

If you would be interested in the opportunity to hold a brief talk (30-45 minute) with a civilian-related topic, a demonstration, or an activity (such as a rounder's game, etc.) please contact me as soon as possible. Roger Kirwin, executive director of Old Bedford Village, has asked me to organize a program of civilian talks and activities for this year's event. I hope to begin finalizing the civilian schedule by June 2.

A welcome meeting will be held in the church on Friday evening which will review the activities planned for the weekend and other potential opportunities to be involved with the public (such as a looting scenario or portrayal of a refugee). So, please plan to attend if you are able. We plan to include a dance, kids' battle, ladies tea, church service, and swap meet among the weekend's activities.

Donations of cookies would be welcomed for the Saturday afternoon's ladies tea.

Thank you for your consideration. I'll look forward to hearing from those who might be interested in the opportunities at Old Bedford Village and hope to see everyone at the event.

Best Regards,

Brenda Geary-Bucek
Civilian Coordinator for the
2010 Old Bedford Village event
