Volunteers needed for First Night Del Ray

We need some volunteers to help with First Night Del Ray, A Kids Old Fashioned Carnival night at the Mt. Vernon Recreation Center, Commonwealth Ave.  The time we are open is only 6-9pm on December 31.  If you can volunteer, you will receive a free adult pass to all First Night activities in Alexandria. 
This is a kids night -- and we need help with the carnival games.  We have plinko, photo booth, corn hole, gone fishing, count the jelly beans -- and many more.  We need at least two people per game. 
If you can help out, please drop me an email at .  This is the 2nd year for this venue,  Last year was a smashing success so we are doing it again.  Since we close at 9 PM, it allows volunteers to go to Old Town and visit venues there before watching the fireworks on the waterfront. 
Hope you can help -- we greatly appreciate it!!!  (If you cannot volunteer, hope you will come -- kids get in free, adults need a badge will be sold at the door!) 
Many thanks!
