FCEA Volunteer Benefits

French Creek is a volunteer organization, without the help and support of the volunteers, there wouldn’t be a club.  We encourage members to volunteer at activities, and spread the word to get others involved.  To encourage and reward the volunteer spirit, we have set up some great benefits.

  • For every eight (8) hours worked at FCEA organized activities, members will receive a $50 Educational Grant.
  • Working half days (4 hours) earns the volunteer, a $5 Volunteer Voucher.  Vouchers can be redeemed for $5 off show entries at FCEA organized shows or participating affiliated shows. 
  • Once you have reached four (4) hours of volunteering at FCEA activities, members are eligible for Year-End Awards.  Awards are given out at our Annual Meeting and Awards Banquet in February.
  • Volunteering gives the club the ability to put on many great clinics, shows and educational seminars.
  • If a friend or family member (over 13 years old) volunteers with you, they are permitted to give you the credit for their worked hours. 
  • Here are some of the ways to volunteer:
    • Volunteer to work at any FCEA organized activity – seminars, Paper Chase, 5k/10k Run, organize a clinic or seminar to benefit the club
    • Attend monthly Board Meetings, held on the first Thursday of the month at 7pm
