VBC11 Needs: Worktrade Volunteers! 

May 25, 2011 by: Michael Cook

Come One Come All, The Village is Building And Needs Your Hands!

Dear Community members, The Village Building Convergence 2011 begins officially this Friday and while we have already created so much goodness there is still plenty left to do! We could use some good ‘ole fashioned Community support in the form of work trade volunteers to help us get the ball rolling. Will you come create a Village with us?!

Here’s How to Help:

From Tuesday to Friday we will be Building our Village Heart at the Venue (St David’s Church 2800 SE Harrison) from 10:30 – 6:30. Bring hands and determination to help us create our Village infrastructure.

Most Importantly! There are still open work trade shifts for during the first three days of the VBC! That means This Friday, Sat., and Sun. Shifts are 4 hours long and except for kitchen prep at 1pm, all shifts begin when we open our doors at 5pm. Shifts include everything from kitchen prep, ticketing booth, Kid’s Room supervision, selling baked goods at The Nest and More!

These awesome volunteer opportunities count as Work Trade towards getting a pass into the Venue for an evening event. (…with the exception of the Tuesday night Starhawk event)

Now that you’ve decided to help, it is imperative that you send us an email at Or better yet! Give us a call at 503.388.1612 and we’ll get you plugged in right away!

To be waiting at the brink of this creation is a wild and wonderful place to be. I very much look forward to jumping in and seeing what (in our wildest dreams) we’re capable of this year.

Thank You For Your Support ~The VBC Volunteer Committee

    I’m sorry but you don’t list it anywhere…. where is “the venue”?

    If you’re going to ask people to volunteer there, it would be helpful if you stated where “there” was!
