Volunteers requested for Peninsula's Candlelight Ski - February 7th!

The Candlelight Ski is coming up in a few weeks and we are hoping you will again sign on to help make this a great success. It is always such a wonderful event but does take a good number of volunteers.

These are the main "opportunities to work":

Candle Setting/lighting crew begin at 2:30 PM by maintenance garage. Need two groups of 5.

Shelter Crew and Volunteer's eating area. Begin at about 4:15 PM to organize food for volunteers, set up shelter for cocoa, cider and cookies, and to act as greeters in shelter throughout evening.

Food need cookie bakers and food for volunteers.

Candle Relighting/Trail Assistance throughout evening to be out on trail.

Parking begin at 4:45 PM. Assist ranger with parking and traffic control and also rotate as guides at trail intersections. Need 8-10 volunteers.

As you can see, it is easy to sign up for multiple tasks. Many hands make light work.

Please email ganderson@wildblue.net if interested.

Thanks, Nick and Gail Anderson
