The College Park Day is only about 9 weeks away and here is the *official* version of the letter we’re sending to all community groups. In case it hasn’t reached you, please spend a moment to read and let us know where you can help out. Thank you.

The City of College Park is organizing its first ever College Park Day, an event that will act as a showcase for the diversity our City has to offer, on Saturday, October 9, 2010, from 1-5 pm.  This event will draw together dozens of community organizations to provide entertainment, activities, and fun for the whole family to enjoy.

We are looking for community members to volunteer and help plan this effort. This effort will be volunteer-driven and run, and we rely on volunteers to help make the event a success!  We are seeking volunteers to help out for approximately 15 hours between now and October 9.
