Volunteer status and Meeting of the Minds            

I was sitting on the beach in Key West last night on vacation thinking about all the volunteers that work at Meeting of the Minds to make it the event that it is. Every day of the year I get updates via email and phone calls telling me about all the things that our hard working volunteers are doing to make this event happen. I constantly read about how the clubs of this great organization raise money that collectively amount to millions of dollars and millions of volunteer hours. This is an amazing community to be a part of and Meeting of the Minds is the event that celebrates our success as an organization. If you can make it to MOTM you should come on down and feel the spirit of this special group of people and musicians in 2017!
 If you want to volunteer for registration or any other duty email Rick Fyffe directly at rjfyffe1@ymail.com  Security is pretty well covered but we always want a few more people just to spread the duties out so everyone can enjoy the show. If you want to volunteer for security and you have already registered just email Jim Dellocono directly at yankscool@live.com If you have not already registered you can sign up online as you register. Not only do we have a crowd coming that are volunteers before they get here…YOU all volunteer and by registering YOU pay the bills to make MOTM happen. Thank you all. This event is yours and it will be awesome!
