Volunteer for State Fair IP Booth!

A message from Jim Moore, IP Chair:

"It's time for the next major milestone on the way to an IP victory! The Great Minnesota Get-Together, the State Fair!

The Independence Party State Fair booth will be at the location familiar from recent years, on the south side of Dan Patch, three blocks in from the Snelling Ave gate, and just west of Underwood (next to the cheese curds store). We are looking for all the volunteers we can get to staff the IP booth and meet and greet the voters. We've got a lot of ideas about attracting attention and establishing our image, but they can't be effective without your help.

We need volunteers for the twelve days of the fair, starting Thursday August 24, and running through Labor Day, Monday September 4. We suggest three-hour shifts, 9-12, 12-3, 3-6, or 6-9. We are budgeting for some free fair tickets, and expect to give them to anyone who signs up for a second, third, etc. day. When planning your time, please remember that it takes more time than you might think to get parked, get into the fairgrounds, make your way to the booth, etc.

The Independence Party booth will be support Team Minnesota, our slate of candidates for statewide constitutional offices, and will particularly feature our candidates for the US Senate and the US Congress: Robert Fitzgerald, Tammy Lee (Congressional District 5), and John Binkowski (Congressional District 6). We also expect to see some candidates for the Minnesota Legislature. If you haven't met these candidates yet, don't miss this chance. If you have, you know why we are excited about giving them the strongest possible support.

This message is primarily to ask you to volunteer for the Independence Party booth. If you would rather volunteer for one of the following individual booths, please indicate that when you volunteer and we will plan your activity that way: Peter Hutchinson and Maureen Reed: west side of Cosgrove, between Wright & Dan Patch, near the Home Improvement booth. Joel Spoonheim: west side of Underwood, just north of Dan Patch, and east of the grandstand ticket booth. John James: on the southwest corner of Cooper and Randall. Lucy Gerold: on the east side of Underwood, between Randall and Wright.

To volunteer, [email
info@mnip.org] or call the IP state office at 651-487-9700. Tell us which shift or shifts you want. We will reply and confirm."

Please consider volunteering at the booth! It's a great time; you will not only get to know the IP candidates, but you will also get to meet interesting people as they stop by the booth! And besides the famous Cheese Curds, a lot of other great food stands are located near the IP booth: Root Beer, Corn on the Cob, Gyros, Funnel Cake, Sweet Martha's Cookies - all within steps of the IP booth! Planning to catch a show at the Grandstand? Volunteer at the IP booth beforehand and you'll have plenty of time to snag a good seat - the Grandstand is just steps away! So you see... you can enjoy all the Fair has to offer and help the IP in the process - what a deal!

(Yes, I realize I'm being cheesy - no pun intended - but we DO need your help. Please contact the IP today to set up your shift(s)!)
