Cuyahoga County Fair Volunteers needed

Dear Band Boosters,

The North Royalton High School Band Boosters have been given an opportunity to staff the cattle gate for this year’s county fair. The county fair runs from Tuesday, August 6 until Sunday, August 11. The hours are Tuesday through Friday and Sunday from 11:00 am until 10:30 pm and Saturday 9:00 am until 10:30 pm. We have to have a minimum of two people at the gate at all times. A high school student is able to work at the gate if accompanied by an adult. No money is exchanged at the gate. The cattle gate is where vendors, RVs, and exhibitors enter and exit the fairgrounds in Berea.

We are interested to know if people prefer to have two shifts per day so they volunteer for six hours and seven on Saturday or if they prefer three shifts of four hours, 4.5 hours on Saturday.  Given that we lost one of the air show gates and we will not be hosting the OMEA concert band state adjudicated event, this opportunity can help us to make up some of those losses. I am reluctant to agree to staff the gate unless I am assured we can cover the event.

Please email me at by Saturday if you are able to help staff this event and what shifts you could cover. I need to get back to the fair representative by the beginning of next week or else we will lose this opportunity. Thank you for supporting your North Royalton High School Band.

Take care,
Kathy Payne – NRHSBB Band Booster President
