Castro Street Fair Volunteers Needed (Sunday 10/3)

The biggest community event of the year along the F-line is coming up: the Castro Street Fair on Sunday, October 3. We need volunteers to man our “booth,” which will be Muni’s oldest streetcar, No. 578, a San Francisco car built in 1895. We are seeking volunteers to staff the booth where we will be selling merchandise and recruiting new members. Hope you can make it for all or a portion of the day.
One of our biggest objectives at Market Street Railway is to get the word out to the neighborhoods along the F-line about the role we play in keeping the F-line streetcars in service and looking good. Most people don’t know that our advocacy was a key factor in replacing the old bus service to Castro with the attractive F-line streetcars 15 years ago, and is still critical to ensuring that Muni allocates enough resources to keep the streetcars running properly.
This is one of the best street fairs in the city, and certainly one of the most fun. So come out and volunteer with us for a couple of hours, then enjoy the fair! If you’re able to help, please email volunteer@streetcar.org and let us know.
In any event, come by on October 3 and meet with us. We’ll have unique streetcar merchandise including our 2011 Museums in Motion calendar and popular “Information Gladly Given, But Safety Requires Avoiding Unnecessary Conversation” t-shirt.
