This Saturday and Sunday, October 15 & 16 is the Orange Park Fall Festival. Clay County ARES will be at Booth 171 from 10am until 5pm each day.
We are looking for ClayARES members to help staff the booth on both days. If you are available, please send an email to email@example.com and let me know your availability. We want to make sure that we have people to talk to everyone who comes by and answer any questions. This will be a great opportunity for us to show our community what we can do in a time of emergency.
