If you’re out and about volunteering this weekend, be sure to pack up some blankets and foot warmers! It seems that many areas have skipped fall and hurtled straight into winter, so it’s important for our volunteers to stay safe and warm. We may just be getting started with the colder weather, but there are still plenty of events coming down the pipe that need our support. Don’t forget, you can plan ahead and seek out events close to you by checking EventingVolunteers.com. Not every event uses EventingVolunteers.com, so if you don’t see your local event be sure to check their social media pages and websites to find out more about volunteering opportunities.

In advance of the Ocala Jockey Club International, happening November 14-17, there is also a need for volunteers before the event begins. You can sign up for more information here and learn more about what positions are available here.
