The Bartholomew County 4-H Fair is rapidly approaching, and the local Fraternal Order of Police is again responsible for helping with the parking cars at the Fair. The FOP says that this event is the largest source of funding for the organization every year and they need your help.

The FOP says it needs help every day of the fair, which is running July 7-16. Volunteers take money at the gate and direct cars in the field on where to park. The FOP provides beverages and the evening shift will get sandwiches. Shifts are usually 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., but can be adjusted to fit your schedule.

Volunteers receive a T-shirt and will be entered in a drawing to win a gas grill as well as two $50 cash prizes.

If you would like to help, email atrisler@columbuspd.com or call (812) 343-2742 or (812) 350-7540. In addition, sign-up sheets are posted at Columbus Police Department and the sheriff’s Department.
