Calling All OKHT Volunteersby Karen Jaworski, OKHT Volunteer Coordinator
The Old Kentucky Home Tour is in need of volunteers. If you’ve ridden the ride in the past, perhaps you’ll consider volunteering to help others enjoy the ride this year.
There are many opportunities to volunteer: some take place during the event, others take place prior to the event, and still more take place after the event. The Old Kentucky Home Tour is only as good as we make it! This is the LBC premier event of the season. Won’t you commit to helping out? Best of all, volunteers who give four hours of their time ride free.
Remember, all volunteers must register for OKHT even if they are not planning on doing the ride. Simply write VOLUNTEER in the ride registration fee area. Please note: you will not be able to register online if you plan on volunteering. All volunteers will receive a special volunteer T-Shirt. Sign up early and volunteer for more than one position!
See the listing and description of the types of volunteer opportunities available below. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact volunteer coordinator Karen Jaworski at 244-0144 or email@example.com. Let’s make OKHT 2004 one of the best ever!
