Oktoberfest at the Kentlands (Gaithersburg) – Canvass for Jill Stein

Help us pass out flyers and sign up volunteers for Jill Stein at the 25th annual Oktoberfest at the Kentlands (Gaithersburg) on Sunday, October 9, from noon to 5pm. Wine-tasting featuring local Maryland vineyards and retailers, a traditional Beer Garden, food vendors and the ever-popular performances of the Alte Kameraden German Band are among the attractions. You can join us whenever you can get there, and leave when you must. Give us 1, 2 or 3 hours, to make contact with the attendees and provide them with information about Jill and help win them over with your enthusiasm. There will be a Green Party table at the festival and we will be giving out flyers for Jill and have yard signs, tee-shirts, and buttons for sale as well. Cheap too.

If you have any questions about this effort, please contact me, Joe Corbett at corbett9@verizon.net or by cell at 301-755-7899.
