Seafair: June 20-August
Every year Seafair is one of Seattle’s biggest summer events, lasting three months.

It’s an easy and fun way to get all the community service hours you need. For more information and to sign up to volunteer visit: http://www.seafair.com/subcontent.aspx?SecID=924
Fourth of July at Lake Union
The fourth of July has become a big event in Seattle, and you can help it happen this year by volunteering at the fourth of July event at Lake Union for the day. You can volunteer to help behind the scenes and see what goes into making the event happen every day. A volunteer gets a t-shirt and the hours are considered community service hours by school—an exciting and fun way to make a dent in those 40 required hours.
