Fellow Mensans, we have some exciting news to share with you!
It is time to be seen at Michigan’s biggest Art Fair. SEMM has secured a booth at the Ann Arbor Art Fair on July 15 & 16, 2015 (Wednesday and Thursday, only). This is perhaps the first time SEMM will be having a marketing presence at the Art Fair. We will be in the non-profit booths area on Liberty St., between 5th and 6th, at the strategic cross way between various other exhibits/events.
Lynn Broniak- Hull (new Ann Arbor Area Representative) and I are organizing this marketing event to showcase SEMM at the fair, and we need your help!
The official open hours are 10 am to 9 pm, but we will need help in (a) setting up on the evenings of Tuesday and tearing down on Thursday, (b) staffing the booths on July 15 & 16 (Wednesday & Thursday) and possibly (c) distributing leaflets to fair attendees and directing foot traffic to our booth. Perhaps kids of adult members might be a good option. There will be lots of literature and other items to hand out.
For now, we have a few requests:
1. Does anyone have an art fair type booth we could borrow (6’X6′, made of fire retardant material & rain proof)?
2. Would you like to be a member of the organizing committee?
3. Can you work a shift (4 & 6 hours) during those days? (or shorter duration if you can’t commit)
4. Do you know of, and could you subsequently refer any businesses that would offer their wares or services as marketing tools – something we could use to have a raffle throughout the two days? (for example: Restaurant: dinner for two, Book store: suitable fiction/nonfiction eBook/soft cover, Health spa/ Healthcare, Gym/ yoga sessions, etc…)
We may also need to borrow some Mensa shirts if some volunteers do not own one.
We have a planning meeting on Saturday, June 20, 2015, 7 PM- 8 PM (before the monthly meeting) at Northwest Unitarian Universalist Church, 23925 Northwestern Highway, Southfield, MI 48075. Please attend if you can. If you cannot attend the meeting, but would like to help, please contact Lynn & Kumar at email@example.com.
