Other jobs

Other jobs and tasks are described here in summary, pending further elaboration. All of these jobs are done by First Night Chatham Committee members.

  • Grants: The Grants Coordinator handles all requests for support of First Night Chatham that require a grant application (more than a simple letter requesting a donation).
  • Site Signs (Exterior): Large signs are placed at each venue listing the entertainment program at the venue. Many are in real-estate sign holders, which are borrowed from local realtors. The Venue Signs Coordinator prepares these signs (new each year), and (with helpers) places and removes the signs on First Night Chatham.
