If you are in need of volunteers for your upcoming event, we have groups looking to sign up. Groups (such as high school teams, charitable organizations, and boy scout groups) that are looking to raise funds for a good cause through volunteering. The businesses/organizations looking for volunteer help usually give a 10% donation from the concession stand which has been worked by the volunteers, a flat fee or another example is approx. $400 - $500 for parking assistance for the event.

Shopping local creates the sales tax money needed to fund our local fire,

ambulance, and police. It also generates funding for road repairs.

" Shop Jefferson County,

it may just save your life!"
