Somerville: Volunteers Needed for 2016 Patriot’s Day Colonial Fair



Help the City re-live Paul Revere’s historic ride from Boston through Somerville and onto Lexington and Concord. Adults and high school students are needed to help plan and execute the City’s annual Patriots Day event, a Colonial Fair at Foss Park on Monday, April 18.


Volunteers are needed in several areas, including: community outreach, working with youth to create drawings about the event and our community in Colonial times, and assistance with event logistics by leading Colonial era games, serving refreshments, and distributing and stamping Colonial Passports. New ideas for the games and passports are also welcome. All volunteers will be asked to dress in Colonial era clothing. We have clothing to lend and/or tips for what to wear of your own. We’ll also teach you games to lead, including hop scotch, cat’s cradle, hoop rolling and ring toss.
