HELENA – Helena Market Days is attempting to cultivate a number of dedicated community members willing to donate their time and efforts to cooperatively contribute toward the city’s prized farmer’s market.

To raise much needed interest and involvement, the organization has announced that a volunteer recruitment meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 18 at 6 p.m. at the Helena Sports Complex located at 110 Sports Complex Drive.

The upcoming gathering seeks to combat recent low meeting turnouts and will aim to recruit volunteers that are passionate toward the continuation and betterment of Helena’s seasonal market, which occurs weekly from the first Saturday of June until the last Saturday in August.

Organizers are encouraging all who are interested to attend and hope that anyone willing to collaborate on fresh ideas to enhance the market experience will lend a neighborly hand.

“If you know of anyone looking for volunteer opportunities, please encourage them to attend the meeting,” said Kelly Morgan, who works with Helena Market Days and also sits on the Helena Economic Development Board.

While the actual days for the event are still months away, Helena Market Days, much like every city event, requires months of advanced planning and background work to deliver the days of community fellowship that have become one of the city’s most valued trademarks.

Primarily designed to raise involvement, interest and awareness, topics of discussion during the recruitment meeting will also include brainstorming sessions and proposals of potential innovations and initiatives for the upcoming market season.
