Howard County Goes to the Fair!
August 3, 2019 @ 10:00 am - August 10, 2019 @ 10:00 pm
Our Revolution Howard County is taking a BIG step forward in the first week of August. We’re going to the county fair!
The Howard County Fair in West Friendship takes place Saturday, August 3rd to Saturday, August 10th and OR HoCo will have a booth all week. With an expected crowd of 80,000 over the week, this is a fantastic, one of a kind chance to reach the Howard County public in all its diversity.
We’ve discussed this and planned for it at the last two member meetings. Now we’re ready for everyone to come on board and staff our booth!
How To Volunteer
August 3 – August 10
We will be there every day of the fair (required for anyone with a booth) at booth A29. Each day is long, 10 am – 10 pm, so we’re asking you to volunteer for one or more four-hour shifts. You’ll get a pass to the fair and parking is free (we’ll contact you with more details once you sign up).
We may not fill every spot, but it would be great if we did. If you can commit, please use our VOLUNTEER FORM.
Sign up is easy. Click on the orange “sign-up option” to choose a shift or shifts, then click the green “submit and sign up.” Done!
What You’ll Be Doing
We’ll be talking to people about Our Revolution. We’ll have sign-up sheets, petitions, and literature on some of the biggest issues of the 2020 election.
ORHoCo is focused on three issues to talk to folks about: 1) Medicare for All, 2) the Climate Emergency (including the Green New Deal, and Howard County’s Less Plastic Please push), and 3) the Bernie Sanders 2020 campaign. There will be handouts on other issues (e.g. immigrant justice, tuition-free college, and $15 an hour minimum wage).
Don’t worry if you’re not an expert on any of these issues. When you sign up, you can add an “x” to the end of your last name (e.g. “JonesX”) and we will do our best to pair you with more experienced folks. What we want most is for this to be a fun learning experience for everyone!
See You At The Fair
This is a such a great opportunity to present the ideas of Our Revolution to our neighbors. So it’d be great to see as many people as possible sign up and take a turn at the fair! Please, take a look at the VOLUNTER FORM and your calendar then get ready to get your fair on!
