For the City Times
Every June, the Village of Custer transforms into a hub of renewable energy and sustainable living education, family friendly entertainment and local food.
This June 19 – June 21, support the 26-year-old tradition with a show of volunteerism. Volunteer opportunities will be available June 14 through June 22.
Last year’s Energy Fair welcomed over 300 volunteers to help with a variety of tasks, from front gate sales to working in the MREA Café, now sponsored by Rishi Tea. Volunteers who devote two hours of time during The Energy Fair will get free admission that same day of the event. Those who are able to devote 12 hours of volunteer time receive free weekend admission, a free pass to the Networking Dinner and a coveted Hardcore Volunteer shirt, which amounts to a $60 value.
To sign-up as a volunteer, visit midwestrenew.org/efvolunteer. For additional information, contact Ciana Rose at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 715-592-6595 x112.
Along with volunteer registration, advanced ticket sales are now open. Ticket prices are discounted in advance until June 5. MREA members need only present their membership card to get in free and kids 12 and under also get in free. Any dad that comes to The Energy Fair with his child(ren) on Sunday, June 21, gets free admission in honor of Father’s Day. Those with advanced tickets will enjoy a speedier entry into The Energy Fair.
