Pumpkin Patch ~ October
Cashier Co-Lead: We are looking for a co-leader. To make the time management a little bit easier.
Concessions: Our food is not complicated, and the district has been incredibly helpful making sure everything is compliant. We will keep the food next to the entrance and have a dedicated cashier there this year. This job could totally be a co-leader team. Each person take a weekend or certain nights, etc. The job entails:
- Making the shopping list,
- getting the food and supplies,
- being at the patch about an hour and a half before opening to set up,
- being there to make sure everything is cleaned up and stored at night.
- ordering dry goods on-line or getting them at Cosco in bulk.
Field Trip Lead: two people have shared this responsibility to make the time more manageable.
Our field trips are pretty awesome.
- A field trip lasts about an hour and includes: story time, a craft, a hunt and seek on a portion of the trail, and picking out a mini pumpkin.
- The leader would reach out to schools, pre-schools, day cares, etc. to advertise.
- Organize the calendar to schedule trips.
- Make sure everything is set up about 30 minutes before the field trip begins, and put supplies away afterwards.
- Be at the field trips to make sure all of the volunteers are set up and ready to go.
Marketing / Advertising: It would be great to have someone focused on getting the yard signs to each school, making sure banners get put up, and helping to get blurb out to everyone, help with our website.
Middle School Event: A middle school parent to organize an event targeting Middle School Students
- Pumpkin Chunkin' Contest - Because who doesn't want to do that! Maybe they have to design and build the catapult?
- A STEAM competition: build a bridge to support five little pumpkins?
- Escape Room. I've never done one but I've heard that it's all the rage. Maybe escape a circus tent?
Carnival Day Lead. We already have carnival games. This would require going through and making sure everything is working, being there about an hour early to direct set up. Supervise volunteers. Direct Clean up. One afternoon. Minimal prep work ahead of time.
Pumpkin Carving Event Lead: This is really straight forward. Setting up tables, table cloths, trash cans, and supervising some volunteers. You could fancy this up with a competition or leave it super simple and basic.
Pumpkin Delivery Day Lead: Order pumpkins, coordinate delivery with EDS.
Star Wars Event Day Lead: I have sent a request to the Golden Gate Garrison to make an appearance. http://www.501stggg.com/ We're talking real live stormtroopers here, people. Real ones! If we get approved, we can use star wars logos, etc to advertise. We can turn the obstacle course into a jedi training event. How excited are you right now!?! I have no other ideas for this, but if someone would like to run with it, I'm all in.
Fairy / Wizard Event Lead: In the past we've had fairy events, and last year we had an amazing Wizard event. It would be great to have something similar again this year. But, it doesn't have to be exactly the same.
International Fair Day Lead: All of our schools have these fairs, and last year's event was amazing! If someone is interested in doing it again, please let me know.
Movie Night: This one involves set up and break down and movie selection.
