Gearing up for the 32nd annual Denver Fair Committee seeks volunteers and hosts barbecue on July 20

Denver Fair committee is preparing for one of the area’s largest local fairs, which takes place Sept. 10 to 14 at Memorial Park on Main Street.
The Denver Fair 2013 theme is "harvest your dreams" and the committee is reminding the community that they could use a helping hand in making the fair’s 32nd year a successful one.
"The fair is made of community members who want to give to the community and make the fair a family event for all ages," said Lorraine Korber, Fair committee member. "We are made up of volunteers, young and old, who make this happen. Without volunteers we have very few hands to help set up, tear down, clean up, maintain and also ensure that all have a fun time."
The fair has sponsorships and fundraisers are held to help defray costs.
"We sell crocks, afghans, collect renders tapes, moo caps – every nickel and dollar helps," added Korber.
Sponsors such as corporate sponsor Henry Schein, Ephrata National Bank, Crossfire and Sun Valley Landscaping along with many others also help make the fair possible.
The Denver Fair committee would like to remind residents of its annual Kauffman’s Chicken Barbecue July 20.
The barbecue is held from 9 a.m. until it’s sold out. Cost for half a chicken is $5. Pick-up sites are at Donnie’s Turkey Hill on Main Street in Denver, Eagle Rental at 1327 N. Reading Road, Green Lawn Garage in Denver and the Denver Park.
Residents can also support the committee’s fundraising efforts and bring a Redner’s receipts and Moo Caps to help with fair costs.
For more information, contact John at 336-0342 or visit thedenverfair.com.
Denver Fair Recruitment is also looking for men and women to assist by helping with Thursday night rec center set-up Sept. 5, Friday night tent and office set-up Sept. 6, Saturday Fairground set-up on Sept. 7 or Fair teardown on Sept. 14 and 15.
Fair visitors can also help with trash pick and clean up at 10 p.m. nightly during the week of the fair.
To volunteer, contact Dennis Worley at 336-7652 or firstname.lastname@example.org or visit thedenverfair.com.
