    Call for Volunteers and Coffee Donations

    The Kona Coffee Cultural Festival is approaching very quickly and we need volunteers for helping us in the Kona Coffee Council booth for the various events.

    Also we are in need of coffee donations. This is a good opportunity for the tourists to see and sample your coffee. Half-pound bags sell quicker for people like to try a variety of farms, but we will gladly accept any size.

    In addition I can use help with the Dinner & Auction to sell tickets and collect the money for the auction items.

    To volunteer and /or donate coffee, please contact :
    Donna Woolley
    322.6575 or 443.7112 or dwoolley@hawaii.rr.com

    We now have over 230 members so we are looking for a good turn out to help with our fund raising. We would love to hear from new members as the Festival is a fun event.
