A Shout Out For Volunteers – We Need You!  

We need volunteers to make the Bourbon County Secretariat Festival a successful event.  Volunteers are needed for all days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 16-18.  Positions can be broken into morning, afternoon and some evening shifts.  We prefer that our volunteers be available to work at least a 4-hour shift, however, we’d be happy to have you longer if you choose.  Volunteers will be asked to arrive at least 1 hours prior to shift start to allow for parking and briefing.  If you have a volunteering preference, please let us know and we will try to accommodate you.  Thanks!
