Volunteers are required to have photo ID with them at all times during
the casino event.

All volunteer staff are prohibited from playing casino games or gaming
terminals (including slot machines and VLT's) for the duration of the event (in our case
both March 8 & 9th even if you only work one of the two days).

Volunteers are prohibited from consuming liquor, being under the
influence of liquor or using illicit substances for the duration of their allocated shift.

We have a tab at the food venue at the casino. This is intended to
offset the inconvenience of having to work during a meal time - treat this as a privilege; it is not an all-you-can eat buffet. For the purpose of our event, this works out to about $15/shift. We were reprimanded after our last casino because we exceeded our budget - please help us ensure that we stay within the guidelines this time.

PLEASE contact Carole Zachkewich if you have any questions or concerns at

780-713-7928(cell) or 780-743-9442(home).

Thank you to all our Dancers, Parents and Volunteers for making the Multicultural Expo 2015 a Success!
