State Fair Opportunity
For over 65 years, our neighbors at Salem Lutheran Church have been operating a diner at the Minnesota State Fair. Like us, they are an older and smaller congregation and are no longer able to manage the diner by themselves. Young people and adults are invited to consider taking a shift or two during the days of the ―Great Minnesota GetTogether.‖ Along with the opportunity to work at the diner, volunteers will get transportation to and from Salem Lutheran, free admission to the State Fair, and youth volunteers will get a cash stipend for each shift. For more information, call 763-561-9185 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please remember our CORNER at the Festival and consider donating something. You may leave your card with your product, hopefully getting some future business ! Any questions please call Kathleen Ross (763) 535-7758
