Gov. Martin O’Malley extends an invitation to all Marylanders involved in volunteer service to spend a fun-filled Sunday at the Maryland State Fair on August 24. The Governor’s Volunteer Appreciation Day is presented by the Governor’s office on Service and Volunteerism and the Maryland State Fair.
“Each year Maryland’s volunteers give over 190 million hours of their time to our communities and we thank them for their service,” said Gov. O’Malley in a statement. “I invite every volunteer in the State to come to the Maryland State Fair on August 24 to celebrate the 2014 Governor’s Volunteer Appreciation Day.”
To thank Maryland’s volunteers for their countless hours of service, Gov. O’Malley is offering them discounted admission, $2, to the Maryland State Fair on August 24. Each pass allows admission of up to five (5) people who have volunteered in Maryland during the past year. The pass will also entitle the patron to discounts on the purchase of food tickets and ride packages from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on August 24 only. The discounted food and ride passes will be good until closing. In case of inclement weather that forces the closing of the Fair on that date, the Governor’s discounts will be honored on August 31.
