Collecting Rusty Junk
We're still looking for donations and rusty agricultural salvage to help Bryan Tedrick complete his "just for Geyserville" sculpture. He will need several tons of rusted metal and is particularly fond of old farm equipment and tools. If you have agricultural parts and pieces to contribute to this great project, please email a photo of your "junk" to Victoria Heiges at firstname.lastname@example.org. Any contributions, cash or metal, will reduce the end cost for the community. Thank you in advance!
Volunteer for Geyserville Events
The Geyserville Chamber sponsors several events in Geyserville throughout the year.Next up is the May Day Festival on the first Sunday in May at Geyser Peak Park. This features a rib cookoff, bouncy house and rock climbing wall, plus great food and historical events. The chamber could use sponsors and set up and tear down help among other things. If you can help, please email us at email@example.com and we will put you in touch with the event coordinator.
The Fall Colors Festival & Vintage Car Show take place the last Sunday in October. The Geyserville Kiwanis and the Chamber sponsor this event in downtown Geyserville. The Tree Lighting & Tractor Parade event is the Saturday after Thanksgiving and this event may be in danger if we do not get help with set up, tear down, trash pickup, and many numerous odd jobs leading up to the event.
All of these events take much work from many volunteers, and we want to reach out to all of our members and residents of Geyserville. There are tasks for just about everyone, and we would love to put your talents, interests, and helping spirit to work. If you would like to lend a hand with May Day, the Fall Colors Festival, and/or the Tree Lighting & Tractor Parade, please contact the Chamber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
