Ice Cream Booth Volunteer Schedule

The Marquette County 4-H Council holds an Ice Cream fundraiser each year at the Marquette County Fair.  Funds raised support the youth and adult volunteers who participate in the Michigan 4-H Youth Development program.  4-H members, parents, club leaders, and Council members are encouraged to sign-up to volunteer for a shift in the 4-H Ice Cream booth (located inside the 4-H Building at the Fairgrounds).  A manager will be on-site during each shift to provide orientation and supervision. 

Wednesday (August  8)
Fair is not open to the public.  Volunteers are needed to help serve food and ice cream to vendors, exhibitors, volunteers, and others who are setting-up and bringing their exhibits into the fairgrounds.

Thursday (August 9) – Sunday (August 12)
Fair is open to the public.  Volunteers will help take orders, run the cash register, scoop ice cream and keep the booth clean.

To sign-up for a shift please contact the Marquette County MSU Extension office: email Liana Graves at deisenro@anr.msu.edu or call 906-475-5731.

An updated version of this schedule will be posted as people sign up. Thank you in advance for your support!
