Community invited to tonight’s SkyFest AGM in Quesnel

There will be an opportunity to take part in key discussions about SkyFest and sign up to volunteer

With Quesnel’s International Airshow only two and a half months away, SkyFest’s board of directors are encouraging community members to come out to the annual general meeting tonight (May 15) and sign up to be volunteers.

SkyFest returns to Quesnel Aug. 2, 3 and 4, and top aerobatic performers like the Snowbirds, the SkyHawks, and the CF-18 Demo Team will be back, along with many more exciting performers.

SkyFest organizers are asking for the community’s help to make this year’s event the biggest and best one yet, and one way to do that is to take part in tonight’s AGM.

The SkyFest AGM takes place tonight (May 15) at 7 p.m. at the Tower Inn Meeting Room. All community members and volunteers are welcome.

Elections will take place during the meeting, and all community

During the meeting, community members will get a chance to take part in key discussions about the future of SkyFest, learn about volunteer opportunities and even register as a volunteer for SkyFest 2019.

SkyFest is looking for help with with gate admission, parking, event setup and break-down, grounds patrol, and more. All volunteers, who must be 19 and older, will have to take part in a practice day and go through orientation to get familiar with the safety procedures and operations.

If you want to get involved, there is a place for you at SkyFest, even if you aren’t available during the event weekend.
