Students invited to help with Winter Fest

A student group has signed on to recruit volunteers to help with Winter Fest in downtown Windsor on Saturday, December 15.

Volunteer International Students Assistance is seeking volunteers to help with setting up, marshalling the Santa Claus parade, and cleaning up afterward.

“This would be a great opportunity if you are looking to be a part of an exciting community event while earning volunteer hours and developing work experience,” says Abdulqader Alsobaihi, the club’s coordinator.

Sponsored by the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association, the event promises to attract thousands of revelers to the city centre to enjoy a winter wonderland featuring ice sculptures, lighting displays, horse drawn carriage rides, carolers, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts—as well as the aforementioned parade. Find a full description on the association’s website.

Students interested in volunteering may fill out an application form and e-mail it to by Wednesday, December 12.
