On behalf of Fayetteville Parks & Recreation THANK YOU for volunteering to assist with our first ever Kessler Mountain Jam! We are very appreciative of you giving your time and talents to the event. A few things to know before arriving to your shift this weekend:

1.) Dress warm -- it will be chilly and you will be outside. Bring layers and wear comfortable shoes. Gloves are also recommended since you may be standing around in once place and we want you to stay comfortable!

2.) Check in at the Volunteer Tent -- Please arrive a few minutes before your shift.

3.) Food/Drink -- bring a water and snack if your shift is over a couple of hours. Some of you may be placed on the trail and unable to leave your location, we don't want you to get hangry! There will be some coffee/bagels onsite for the morning shifts and product samples available from vendors throughout the day. A food truck or two also onsite.

4.) If you are a course monitor volunteer (Sunday), please be prepared to hike anywhere from a half mile to a full mile into your course location.

Again - shout out to you all for your help. We look forward to meeting you this weekend!
