The Volunteer Fair is from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 29 at the Japanese-American Memorial Garden, located just west of the ES Building. San Luis Valley non-profits are invited onto campus to represent their agency and recruit for volunteers. Student clubs will be fundraising by selling food items and there will be musical entertainment.
