Gobble Wobble volunteers needed

Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and with it, the traditional turkey day morning Gobble Wobble.

The event is also the annual fundraiser for the Friends of Southborough Recreation.

If you want to help but don’t plan to run, consider volunteering. If you are participating, you can still help out with pre-event preparation or cleanup after.

Friends’ President Susie Cabral asked me to share their call for help:

Volunteers Needed
We expect another 1,000+ people at the event and it takes a lot of volunteers to help with registration the day before and day of the event. Thank you to those volunteers from last year who have already stepped up to help. If you can spare a ½ day on either Wednesday, November 27th or on November 28, we would greatly appreciate it. We promise to have you home with your families by noon on Thanksgiving Day.

Here’s a list of what we still need:

Wednesday, November 27th (Recreation Office)

  • Man the registration/pre-reg tables (2 people 8:30-1pm and 2 people 1pm-6pm)
  • Setup Fun Run (1 person)
  • Setup Trottier Gym (2 people)
  • Load Van @ 6pm (if the 4 afternoon folks could stay for an extra 15 min. that would be great)

Thursday, November 28th (Trottier Middle School)

  • Coffee pickup at Starbucks and DD at 6am (1)
  • Setup and man food table (2) 6:30-9am
