New & Improved Volunteer Applications available now


The Corn & Apple Festival is in need of volunteers and has released an overhauled volunteer application to make the process easier than ever.

MORDEN, MB, July 25 — The Morden Corn & Apple Festival is excited to unveil its brand-new volunteer application. The application is available on the Festival website, and the application process is designed to be quick and easy. Now everyone can contribute to the Festival, even if they only have a couple of hours to spare during the weekend.

The Festival relies heavily on its volunteers, with close to 1,000 people contributing annually. Volunteers help in many areas, including cooking and serving hot, delicious corn on the cob, handing out free apple juice, organizing children’s activities, aiding during Festival set up, acting as parade marshals, and many other roles.

“The Festival wouldn’t be possible without our volunteers,” said Tim Hodge, Executive Director of the Morden Corn & Apple Festival. “That’s why we’ve made it easier than ever to get involved. Our new volunteer application is simple to use and makes it easy for anyone to lend a hand, no matter how much time they have to spare.”

“The Festival is only a month away, and there are still some areas we need volunteers for,” added Hodge. “Overall, we’re in better shape now than we were last year at this time in terms of our volunteer numbers, but we still need some assistance. Our new application highlights our areas of need.”

The new volunteer application is available on the Festival website at:
