Volunteers needed at convention center events
The Fairfield Arts & Convention Center is seeking volunteers for several events in October.

Volunteers also are needed to work anytime in the office to clip and archive articles about the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center from newspapers and to apply labels to brochures with rescheduled date for the Roy Clark show.
Luse said when a person volunteers for events other than shows, he or she acquires hours toward show tickets. Every four hours of nonshow volunteer work is worth one ticket. Volunteers should sign in and clock hours when volunteering for areas outside the theater.
“As always, let me know if you have any questions or concerns,” said Luse.
Luse can be contacted by calling 472-2787.
