The Daddy of ’em All is opening its door to folks looking to help out with the annual event by hosting a Cheyenne Frontier Days Volunteer Fair on Saturday, February 28.
“The main thing we are looking for in a volunteer is someone willing to give of their time as long as they are having fun,” said CFD General Chairman Darin Westby in a release. “We add volunteers every year but we have never made the process as open and transparent as it should be. This will change how we develop future leadership for Cheyenne and Cheyenne Frontier Days. We are really excited to go in a new direction with our volunteers.”
Westby said there are numerous areas on the park where additional volunteers are needed, including information delivery, hospitality, visitor safety, public relations, parades and other duties.
The Volunteer Fair will start at 2 p.m. at the Buckle Club on Saturday. There will be information about CFD, volunteering and a brief discussion about the function of the committee recruiting volunteers. Representatives from each of the committees will be available to chat and answer questions and applications to volunteer will be accepted on site.
The Buckle Club is located on the top floor of the Exhibit Hall, at the southwest corner of Frontier Park. It’s best to enter off Hynds Blvd.
