Volunteers Kearney Dog Sled Races

We couldn’t do it with out our Volunteers

volunteersThe Kearney Dog Sled Races Committee is looking for new volunteers to help organize this year’s event.  We always have a lot of volunteers race weekend, many of which come back year after year, and we are truly grateful for them because the weekend simply would not be manageable without them!  But there is also a small group who work through the fall and early winter leading up to Race Weekend to pull it all together.  You’ve undoubtedly heard the phrase “many hands make light work”?  well this is precisely why we’re looking for a  little extra help!

Dog Sled Committee meetings are not closed door affairs, anyone is welcome to join us.  You don’t even have to formally join the committee to volunteer with a specific sub-committee, or take responsibility for one aspect of the event, although you are certainly welcome to do so!  Meetings are generally held Thursday evenings at the Kearney Community Center in the Seniors Room, and run from 7PM to roughly 9PM.  From September through to December, we have 1 meeting a month, then after New Years, we step up the meetings to weekly in order to pull everything together.  Meetings are always advertised on the digital sign outside the municipal building in advance, if you’re ever not sure.

We also stay in touch over email, so if you’d like to be included in our distribution list, please send us a note at [email protected] and we’ll be sure to add you.  Please note, this distribution list is specific to the organization of the event, not simply for critical news about the event itself – our website also contains a lot of information about what will be happening in and around Town on Race Weekend.

Sub-committees include:

> Sponsorship                                   > Souvenirs                                        > Trails

> Vendors                                           > Volunteers                                      > Website & Social Media

 

You can give as much of your time as you are comfortable with.  Because of personal commitments, we even have committee members and volunteers who are not able to work with us on Race Weekend, but can help organize specific parts of the event in advance, and these people are very valuable to our core team!

100% of the Kearney Dog Sled Races is volunteer run.  So plan to drop in at our next meeting, or send us a note to see if there is something you can do to give a helping hand.  Many hands make light work, but we also have a lot of fun in the process!

October 22 — November 19 — December 10

January 7, 14, 21, 28 – February 4, 11

    Hi – I’m interested in Volunteering for the dog sled races in Kearney.

    I’m a grade 10 student an have a sled that I could also use if required.
