Volunteering at Pennsic
Greetings to the populace from Baroness Amarie de St. Denis, Pennsic 49 Volunteer Coordinator!
Pennsic War is entirely conducted by volunteers, from the Mayor on down. The tasks required to carry out such a huge enterprise is staggering. Some volunteers are on site setting up weeks before we open, giving up their vacations to set up our “home”. After we open, a vast multitude of tasks need volunteers to make Pennsic run.
Pennsic needs help from all of you! If everyone gave an hour, there would not be enough jobs to go around. There are volunteering opportunities for everyone – walking, driving, sitting; under cover and out and about; engaging with the public and behind the scenes; and tasks that will give you a workout and tasks that are clerical. My job is to encourage people to volunteer and to match you up with the areas around Pennsic that can use your talents and service. If you are as excited as we are about all the activities Pennsic offers, I implore you to please consider offering an hour or two of your time back!
If, like me, you are just raring to get to Pennsic and do service, you can sign up beforehand to volunteer: Use our on-line Volunteer Form below to let us know what positions you would like to learn more about, or to sign up if you know which department(s) you are interested in working for.
If you already know what department you are interested in volunteering for, you can go directly to that service point to sign up there when you get to War. If you don’t, and just want to help where you’re needed, locations with open shifts at the various service points will be posted everyday on a whiteboard outside of Town Hall, as well as on the Pennsic War Facebook page, and you can always check in at the various service points.
Thank you in advance for making OUR Pennsic War a success! I look forward to seeing and meeting many of you.
We many work so we all can play,
