Sunfield SPY's Newsletter 7/26/20

Open Class Craft Show Needs Some Help

The 2020 Sunfield Farmers Picnic is taking place on August 14th and 15th, in a scaled back version. The Open Class Craft Show sponsored by the SPYs will take place on Saturday, August 15th.   Farmer’s Picnic Board Member DeAnna Clark needs one or two individuals to volunteer to help with the Open Class Craft Show.  Duties will include helping from 8-10 a.m. with registration / placing entered items onto the display tables by categories; after the items have been judged - assist with recording the judge's awards both on the entry log and on the ribbons.  Also need someone to keep an eye on the entries under the tent, which is closed during the grand parade, while DeAnna goes to take photographs of the parade entries.  Then to share in the remainder of the day until 6 p.m. to keep traffic under the 'craft' tent going in one direction and keeping viewers limited to 3-4 individuals at any one time so that social distancing can be maintained. Entries are normally picked up between 5:15 - 6 p.m. with prize envelopes handed to the crafter.  During the afternoon, it would be nice to allow each person (DeAnna and each volunteer) to take a couple of short breaks to enjoy the Picnic, get food/drinks and use the restroom.  Please contact DeAnna at or call her at 517-231-2527 if you have any questions or to let her know if you can help.  Thank you!
