Seating:   There are about 300 chairs placed near the stage where the Bands perform.  Those chairs are first-come-first-served.  Those chairs are usually taken very quickly.  To be assured of a seat while watching the bands perform, you may want to bring a folding chair.  

An over-riding Theme:   The Community Day Events Committee, staffed by volunteers, always attempts to insure that activites for kids are Free, or as inexpensive as possible.

Fire Vest Program  A Fire Vest booth where a fireman will explain how any Township resident can get two years of free tuition and books at CCAC.

Pavillions:  For this event the Pavillions are provided on a first-come-first-served basis -- during this Event they cannot be reserved.  Event attendees are asked to not attempt to reserve a Pavillion or a table in a Pavillion by leaving a coat, etc. on a table/chair to "reserve" it.   At all other times of the year you can reserve a Pavillion or area in Gallatin-Sunnyside Park -- Call Karen at the Municipal Building (412-384-1761) for info.

Funding:    The expenses associated with this Event are paid for with donations.  Please pay attention to the banners, etc. that acknowlegde the Donors.  This Event could not take place without their financial help.

Common questions about volunteers and volunteering
How long does a volunteer work?  Some of our volunteers can only help for a few hours, and some work all day.  Some can only work on one of the Event Days and some can work on both days.  We appreciate whatever you can do.  Some prefer to work with their spouse, girlfriend, or boyfriend -- we can arrange for any of those situations to happen.

 What kind of jobs do volunteers do:   Some of the jobs performed by volunteers are as follows:  work at booths where games are played, direct traffic, show cars where to park, put up signs, and banners, carry messages, drive the hay wagon, transport handicapped individuals in a golf cart, help clean up after the event each night. 

Are their any required physical skills?  We can accomodate just about level of physical capability.  We have folks who must walk using a walker.  We have others who must use a wheelchair.  On the other end of the spectrum we have young men and women in their prime who have outstanding physical capabilities.
