INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING FOR THE PHILADELPHIA SHOW?


Free entry and all the exciting behind the scenes action !!!!.. Philadelphia flower Show


volunteer info from Elsa Efran , respond directly to Elsa at eefran@pennhort.org if interested


and she can add your email address to her distribution list for further details.
We invite you to work with us (again or for the first time) for the 2018 PHS
Philadelphia Flower Show.
This is a fun and rewarding volunteer position,
Entering data into our easy to use scoring program, —we’ll ...train you or refresh your skills.


We will be set up to start anytime after
January 15. Show runs from March 3 to March 11.
You can assist the Horticulture Committee with its exhibitor mailing (mid-February) at PHS.
Or, help at the Pennsylvania Convention Center the week before the Show and during the
Show .


During the week before the Show, we print entry cards and judging sheets (this mainly


involves feeding cards and paper into
the printers and then organizing the resulting paperwork). We process upwards of


10,000 pre-entries for the Show, about 45%
of which actually came to the Show.


During the Show, we enter the results from the Horticulture and Artistic judging into our


Points system and proofread and file
all the paperwork (no computer experience necessary, only eagle eyes).
We need filers, proof readers, runners,typists (Points-savvy and/or Word savvy), and
nomenclature checkers.
, We request that you work a shift
of at least three hours. Of course, we’d be happy to have you for as much extra time


as you’d like to work.
We’d appreciate your getting in touch (by mail, e-mail, or phone) to let us know if you are interested this year and what times and jobs
work best for you. If you have friends who might be interested in helping out, please let us know that, too—we’re always looking for
computer folks but also could use more “non-techies” like those of you who so ably organize our paperwork and proofread our printouts.
Working on Points can be addictive—many of our current volunteers have been with us for


a number of years. All of us are happy to welcome and train newcomers
