To register, email bardcivicengagement@gmail.com or call 845-758-7453 by August 1, 2013.
“We continue to be amazed by the hundreds of people who come out to get involved,” said Erin Cannan, Associate Director for Bard Center for Civic Engagement. “What an opportunity for potential volunteers, ranging from 8th graders to Bard college students to senior citizens, seeking volunteer opportunities.  The Fair offers a huge variety of local resources and reminds us of how important it is to support our local agencies.”
In addition to the Volunteer Fair, there will be a local farmers’ market showcasing Hudson Valley farms including Bard College’s own farm.
The Volunteer Fair is a collaborative venture of Bard College, Red Hook Chamber of Commerce, Red Hook Public Library and Red Hook Central School District.
