Any THC members who would like to volunteer can do so at this link:
BIG (Brewer’s of Indiana Guild) needs volunteers for the 2014 Bloomington Brewfest on April 12th. Here is the invite letter I was asked to share:
If you’re getting this, then you’re on our list to volunteer for the Bloomington Craft Beer Fest. We’re still working out assignments and logistics, but I have a favor to ask.
Call your friends!
Right now, we still need loads of hard-working beer lovers to help us out. It’s perfectly OK if they’ve never volunteered before. We’ll even do our best to pair you up to work together.
Thanks a million!
