Registration and information sessions will be held province-wide on May 9 in order to help recruit volunteers for the 2015 edition of the Jeux de l’Acadie (Acadian Games), indicated Émile Gallant, President of the organizing committee.
"We are still looking for volunteers to perform different tasks during the Games," explained Mr. Gallant. "We are looking for individuals who speak English, French or both languages to ensure that activities run smoothly."
There is a strong need for volunteers in various sectors such as security, first aid, welcoming of delegations, food service, etc. Those interested in volunteering for the 2015 Acadian Games can do so individually or as a group.
Volunteer registration and information sessions will take place in the province’s six school-community centres (DeBlois, Abram-Village, Summerside, Rustico, Charlottetown and Fortune) on Saturday, May 9, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Members of the organizing committee will be on hand to take registrations and answer questions.
Those who register in person on May 9 will have a chance to win one of six pairs of tickets for the Ten Strings and a Goat Skin concert coming up on May 23. The tickets were donated by the Carrefour de l’Isle-Saint-Jean located in Charlottetown.
For more information or to register as a volunteer, consult the Games’ Web site at 2015.jeuxdelacadie.org or contact the coordinator at 368-1895, ext. 203.
