Hanover Day is coming – how can you participate?

Dear fellow Hanoverians:
Hanover Day is set for June 27th and volunteers are now being sought for
the following roles. If you have always wanted to participate in Hanover
Day, but didn’t know how to, here are some ideas! Please contact Chris
Haraden at charaden@comcast.net for more details or to sign up.

Volunteer Opportunities
These are the major volunteer opportunities that need to be solidified now,
and we have some folks already working in these areas who could use
assistance. On the day of the event, there are many other things that will
need to be assigned, so all levels of interest and availability are
welcome. We can definitely use more hands to lighten the load!

– Assist Dave Malekpour with Hanover’s Got Talent auditions and managing
the logistics of the acts
– Also assist Dave with the Battle of the Bands to seek out bands, market
the event, obtain prizes and sponsors
– Sponsorship requests. Work with Chris Hillier to contact local businesses
about sponsorships and participation.
– Cathy H-B needs 8 drivers of shuttle vans to bring vendors back and forth
to Briggs Stables, and do the pickup routes to senior housing throughout
the day. No special license is required to drive the vans.
– 3-on-3 Basketball Tournament coordinator. Could be one or two people.
Maybe an adult and a HS student with an interest in basketball? Manage
registrations, set up games, coordinate referees, help obtain prizes for
winners. We have templates to use from past years. This is a fun event but
has lots of moving parts – perfect for an organized mind!
– Volunteer coordination. Work with Molly Connolly to ensure all have CORI
checks, sign up volunteers for parts of the event that need them, sign off
on HS students’ forms for community service hours. Help recruit
volunteers at the high school.
– Info booth captain. On the day of the event, the info booth should be
staffed at all times. Coordinate volunteers to be sure someone is always
there throughout the day to answer questions, direct volunteers who arrive
for their shifts, stay in contact on walkie-talkies in case of an
– Food vendor coordinator. Work with food trucks and other vendors on
selection and locations.
– Field management. Work with Paul Nimeskern to sure the tables, chairs,
and tents we order get to where they need to go (stage, 3-on-3 courts, food
tent, etc.). Be sure generators are in place and operational. Work with DPW
and others on logistics and be sure we are keeping required clearances for
fire trucks, etc.
– Marketing and promotion. Work with Rachel Hughes to help with social
media, website, promotions, etc. Also, making sure we promote all of the
different activities that are happening throughout the day to target
audiences (seniors, kids, athletes, crafters, stage performers)

Again, please contact Chris Haraden at charaden@comcast.net for more
details or to sign up!
