Daily Update - 2014
Hello to our faithful maple syrupers!
Here's where you can find regular updates on our need for volunteers throughout the syruping season.
Friday, March 7 - Looking for Experienced Tree Tappers
The Community Tapping Day is Saturday, March 15th and we hope you can be there! More information about that day will be coming next week! Anyone is welcome to help with Tapping Day, no previous experience is necessary!
In preparation for Tapping Day, we are putting out a call for some more experienced volunteers. We are looking for a group of people who can be our Tapping Day Leaders. These people will be in charge of directing a group of people on the correct way drill the tree, tap in the spile, and hang the bucket/bag on the tree.
You could be one of these people if:
1. you are available Saturday, March 15th from 2-5 pm for Tapping Day
2. you are available Friday, March 14 from 3-4:30 pm OR Saturday, March 15 from 10-11:30 am for a training session
3. you have previous experience tapping trees
4. ideally can provide your own cordless drill (but not required)
5. you love maple syrup with your whole heart (not required but really, why don't you??)
If you are interested in being a Tapping Day Leader, please email Sarah back by Wednesday, March 12th the following information:
-Have you helped at one of our Tapping Days before?
-Can you provide a drill?
-Confirm which training session you can be at 3/14 at 3pm or 3/15 at 10am
Again, anyone is welcome to help with Tapping Day, we are just looking for a small group of experienced volunteers to help during that day as Tapping Day Leaders. Only the Tapping Day Leaders need to come to the training session.
