Volunteers needed for Fiesta Mexicana event this weekend

The Fiesta Mexicana is this weekend, Aug. 4-6, in Woodburn! For a second straight year George Fox will have a booth at the event, and we are looking for volunteers to help staff it! This is the 54th year of the fiesta and a wonderful opportunity for you to see and experience the Latino community from where many of our students come.

The shifts are easy, as you get to enjoy talking to people, give away George Fox bling and see some great soccer, dance and other fun activities. You will not be alone, as one person from the diversity committee will be there as well, and we are matching Spanish speakers with non-Spanish speakers. That’s just an extra bonus, as most people speak English.

The fiesta runs Friday from 1 to 8 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. (the parade starts earlier) and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m..

If you can volunteer any time at all (even one to two hours), please contact Rebecca Valdovinos at rvaldovinos@georgefox.edu.

Thank you!
