Volunteer shifts are four hours long.Those helping out also receive a $5 concession coupon each shift, as well as a weekend wristband so they can attend as guests.
Area residents interested in volunteering for the non-profit BC Interior RV Society hosted event are welcome to pick up a volunteer form in person at Midtwon RV in Penticton, located at 310 Industrial Avenue West, no later than April 15, or register online at: www.bcinteriorrvshow.ca.
B.C. Interior RV directors also encourage the public to bring a non-persihable food item for the Salvation Army Food Bank in exchange for a $5 wristband.
