Dear REV Band Boosters:
Welcome to our 2013 Band season!
What does band season bring? It brings fundraising!
You are receiving this message so you have the opportunity to be part of one of the most profitable fundraisers your REV Band Boosters participates in. It's our concession stand at the San Manuel Amphitheater in Devore.
The 2013 San Manuel concert season usually runs from the May or June through October. This year we began early - having already done two concerts in March.
Our "job" at each scheduled concert is to fill our stand with 12 trained volunteers and serve sodas, beer and nachos to concert-goers. Sounds simple enough right?
So what do you need to do to be part of this elite group of individuals? Special training is involved.
The concession stands at San Manuel Amphitheater are run by a company called Aramark. They require all of their volunteers, as well as staff, to be properly trained in how to serve food and beverages - alcoholic and non-alcoholic - as well as customer service.
Once you have attended training you are able to work any concert that comes up this season. The list of concert dates is below.
When will training take place?
For your convenience I have arranged to bring training to you.
Tuesday, May 21st at REV in the band room at 6PM.
A few things you should be aware of:
1. Volunteers in our stand MUST be at least 21
2. Every volunteer MUST attend training, even if you trained last year.
3. Even if you have a current food handler's card you still MUST take the training course for it to be valid with Aramark.
4. Volunteers do not need to be band parents. They can be any friend or family member who wants to support the REV Band Boosters as long as they are 21 or over. It's a great opportunity for someone that needs volunteer hours.
What do you need to do now?
Check your schedules to see if you are able to participate in any of the concerts this season. Send me a message and let me know if you will be attending.
Attend training on Tuesday, May 21st at 6PM in the Band Room.
Our next concert will be Mumford & Sons, Sunday, June 2nd.
If you have any questions regarding this fundraiser or training please email me directlyways.and.means@revband.org .
