This year’s festival will be held Saturday September 21st and Sunday September 22nd. We started working with Jon Bachman the 10th of January to make this year’s festival even better than prior year’s. The popularity of this event has grown not only with the attendees but also the TOGA volunteers. Please save either the 21st or the 22th or both to join in. It is a great way to blend multiple aspects of the TOGA goals while enjoying various wines, beers, crafts and learning about other non-profits across the region. For some it could be a trip “north” to perhaps see and experience a part of Virginia yet unexplored by you.
The addition of a mid-day (11 am to 3 pm) volunteer time slot proved to be very popular with TOGA volunteers. It enabled us to better handle critical peak periods. Weather is always a factor (as we well know from last year when the festival had to be cancelled), but given similar conditions, Saturday has shown to have the highest attendance. Thus, we hope to encourage more Saturday volunteers this year. Even if you have been unable to participate in the past, please consider it when making plans for this September.
We look forward to another successful festival and encourage your participation in order to have a strong showing from TOGA. -- Mike Sanders, Brian Wood, MOGs
