Volunteer at the Fair

Fair season is less than a month away and the Ridgefield Lions are looking for community members to volunteer in our food booth at the Clark County Fair.  The fair season runs August 1-12.  Here is the link to view available dates and shifts, https://www.ridgefieldlions.org/volunteer_opportunities/

The Ridgefield Lions have been active in our community since 1948, and our motto is “we serve”.  Some of the charities we help include: Neighbors Helping Neighbors Food Bank, Clark County Sight Committee, Washington State School for the Blind, and local cub and boy scout troops.

Another big part of our service is having monies or “grants” available to the various teams and clubs at Ridgefield High School.  These grants can be used to help fund various uncovered costs such as new uniforms, equipment, travel, or production expenses.  For example, we just donated $1500 to RHS Cheer to help pay for new jackets to use during the fall and winter seasons.  The amount available for us to donate varies year to year, and this year the Lions have $6000 to give to RHS sports and clubs.  In addition to the $6000, Lions also has approximately $10,000 in scholarship money available to graduating seniors. (These scholarships are for graduating seniors whether they attend Ridgefield or other schools, but live in our district).

One of our largest money making events is the Lions’ food booth at the Clark County Fair.  The more money we make, the more we can give back to our community.  The best way for us to have a successful booth during the fair is having adequate volunteers.

We humbly ask community members, both adults and teens, to volunteer this fair season. All jobs at the fair can be done by teens with the exception of grill cook and deep fryer. In addition, all volunteers get free parking and admission to the fair on the day they work.  Gather your family and make a fun day out of it!

Note from Kathy – you can also support the Ridgefield Lions Club by buying food at their booth during the fair.
