Lantern Festival-July 16th 2009
Posted June 23rd, 2009 - 6:39 pm by from Boston, United States (Permalink)
Hey guys,

I received an e-mail that the Forest Hills Educational Trust is looking for volunteers:

Volunteers needed for our 11th Annual Lantern Festival to be held on Thursday, July 16th.

We are looking for volunteers to help with greeting guests, selling lantern shades, handing out lantern bases, helping at the arts table and with writing Chinese calligraphy.

There are two shifts we need to fill:
5:00 until 7:00 and 7:00 until 9:00.

As a volunteer you will receive a free lantern!

If you are interested in helping us please email which shift you would like to volunteer for, and if you have any experience in Chinese calligraphy please state that as well.

contact Meredith: msafford@foresthillstrust.org

Info on the 11th Annual Lantern Festival:

Join us for a moving memorial ceremony inspired by Buddhist rituals, which has become a popular community event. Inscribe a lantern with a personal message to friends or family and float it across Lake Hibiscus at sunset.
