Sign Up Now Sixty Volunteers Needed to Help With Nov 1 JAG Fall Festival and Picnic

The Jefferson Lab Activities Group will host a Fall Festival and Picnic on Wednesday, Nov. 1, from 3-6 p.m., on the SURA Residence Facility field. All Jefferson Lab staff, students, users and their families are invited to the event, which will be filled with food, fun and prizes.

In order to make this event enjoyable for everyone, the JAG needs volunteers to help with set up, food prep, food and drink service, drink bracelets, field set up and clean up. Volunteer positions, in one-hour shifts, are posted on the JAG webpage at:

Please sign up for one or more of the 60 volunteer slots; help is need from about 9:30 a.m. through 6 p.m. Sign up early to get the tasking or timeframe that best suits your availability. The more help, the merrier! Remember, JAG can't do these events without volunteers!

Come and enjoy the food, beverages and activities. A Homebrew Beer Competition is planned and a Trunk-or-Treat Contest. Visit the JAG webpage for more information about the event and for volunteer sign up:

Trunk-or-Treat Contest

Conjure up your creative spirits and enter the Trunk-or-Treat Contest. Decorate and enter a vehicle of your choice, whether it's a monster truck, spooky antique car or even your Jefferson Lab group's golf cart. Provide a ghostly game, creepy craft or spine-tingling activity for the kids (and adults). And don't forget: This is a great way to get rid of that extra Halloween candy! A special prize will be awarded to the winning individual or group. If you have any questions about the contest or are interested in entering, contact Stephanie Vermeire at

We look forward to seeing you there!
