We've just completed a few summer events, and we are simply in awe of the skill and dedication of our volunteers. Centrum is fortunate to have you as part of the Centrum family.
As we move into the heart of the summer, we need to ask for your help. We have a few critical jobs that we need assistance with. Please look at your schedules and let us know if you can assist us with any of the following projects:
1 – SPECIAL PROJECT – FACULTY AND PERFORMER FRUIT BASKETS
On Saturday July 19th and/or Sunday July 20th we need a few people to put together 38 fruit baskets and deliver them to the faculty and staff of Jazz Port Townsend. The space and materials needed to assemble the baskets will be here at the Centrum office. This is a great way of welcoming the faculty and staff to our community.
2 – FREE FRIDAYS AT THE FORT
Beginning on July 11th (and ending August 8), "Free Fridays at the Fort" will kick off on the lawn in front of the Fort Worden Commons. One or two volunteers can help us welcome people to these events, help out with the Centrum information and Merchandise display, and just generally be the great ambassadors of Centrum that you always are. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Centrum office by 11:00 am the day of the event.
3 – "JAZZ BLOWOUT" (PUBLIC EVENTS ON THE FRIDAY OF JAZZ)
John Clayton has curated a series of public events on Friday for which we need host support. These events will showcase incredible jazz artists discussing and demonstrating their instrument, their technique, their tradition. These are not performances, but an insider's look at the workings of jazz, held in a workshop setting.
As a host, you will welcome ticket holders, work independently, be able to get around easily, and be able to help others who may need assistance getting around. You will also provide Assistive Listening Devices (ALDs) as needed (we'll show you how).
These public events run from 9am to 12n, and from 1pm to 4pm.
If you can help with any of these events in July, please call our volunteer coordinator Lisa Werner at 385-3102 x128 or via email at lisa at centrumdot org.
