2017 Carolina Alpaca Celebration Volunteer Opportunities

Happy New Year!  Hopefully your holidays were great and now that it is 2017, its time to be thinking about the upcoming Carolina Alpaca Celebration. The Show Committee has been meeting monthly since the summer and has CABO gearing up for the Show.

CABO sponsors one of the best alpaca shows and it is due to the participation and hard work from our members and volunteers who serve on the Show Committee and those who give of their time and energy during the Show. Our Show guests consistently rave about how amazing our volunteers are — your hospitality and service orientation make it great.

It is time to turn our attention to the 2017 Show and we need your help. We are anticipating a great turnout and are excited to be offering the new Walking Fleece competition. Please consider volunteering, experienced or not; each Show is different and everyone learns new things.

We are also interested in promoting volunteer opportunities from youth or school groups such as the Scouts, 4H, school bands, animal science majors, etc. who may be interested in learning about alpacas by volunteering over the week-end.  If you can, please try to determine interest, availability, commitment and any potential restrictions.

For the first time, this year we are using an electronic sign up service through Sign Up Genius. Click Carolina Alpaca Celebration Volunteers for the sign up location. In each of the areas where we need volunteers, there is a brief description of the duties of that volunteer position.  Don’t shy away if you can’t volunteer for an entire time slot—just make a comment about what you can do.
