Now is the time to get involved with the All Souls Procession Weekend activities. With the Procession on the horizon, falling on November 9 this year, we at Many Mouths One Stomach and in the community are gearing up with the various events, workshops and gatherings in preparation for the Procession.
This year’s activities include the Little Angels wing-making and costume-making workshops designed for children to come out with their parents or guardians to make wings and costumes for the children’s portion of the All Souls Procession Weekend, the Procession of the Little Angels on November 8 this year. We need volunteers to help cut out those cardboard wings and to help make costumes. Workshops will take place twice a week beginning in October. Jhon Sanders heads this project and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also need help with making sugar skulls and helping the children at the arts activities tables during the Procession of the Little Angels event.
We need some volunteers to help with the All Souls Procession personal altars. Being a volunteer would entail keeping track of those that registered their personal altars, setting them up with a space and staying until the breakdown of altars the evening of November 9. Alyssa Volpe is heading this project and can be contacted at email@example.com.
In addition, we are also in need of ONE Ancestry Archiver who can regularly check our server and Ancestors e-mail for submitted photographs between now and November 8th, 2008. The Archiver will work with the Buckstopper to prep images for the Ancestors installation sites. Interested parties should contact Adam Cooper-Terán, the Ancestors Buckstopper at his personal e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Requirements: Bright technically-minded individuals who would assist in the setup and tear-down of the Ancestors Installation on the night of the All Souls Procession, November 9. Duties would include transporting projectors to the designated installation sites, laying out cabling, setting up DVD players, and supervising the sites during the Procession.
