Fleadh Volunteer Request!

The 2017 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh is being held on Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 5th, 6th, and 7th at the Parsippany Hilton in Parsippany, NJ!

Volunteer coordinators Rose Flanagan and Anne Creaney are in need 2 volunteers per competition room, as well as some volunteers for the office for just a few hours per day.

Please let Rose or Anne know as soon as possible if you’re available and if you have a preference – would you like to help in the office or is there a particular competition you’d like to see?  Please let them know what day/time/competition you’d be available to assist us with.

Although part-time work is okay, a full day commitment is ideal. The hours would run 9-2, with breaks in between competitions and for lunch.

Maybe you know someone who would like to help out and hear some great Irish music? or a young adult who may need some community service hours? What an enjoyable way to earn those hours!

Those of you who volunteer receive free admission to the Fleadh on that day.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Rose at miltownmalbay@msn.com or Anne at annecreaney@yahoo.com.
