If you’re going to be in Northfield during the Vintage Band Festival (August 1-4) and have a few hours free, we could sure use your help in a variety of areas. High school age youth are welcome to participate in most volunteer areas. We need folks to do stage changes in Bridge Square (move chairs and stands on and off the stage between concerts, keep the coolers stocked with bottled water, etc.). We need folks to roam through the crowd picking up donations and handing out programs and pins. We need volunteers at Headquarters and at the instrument exhibit in the Historical Society. There are a number of other specialized tasks as well. You can see a list of all of the jobs and shifts needed on the VBF website www.vintagebandfestival.org. Click on “Volunteer for VBF” on the Festival Information menu.
Debra Bjornard is coordinating our volunteer recruitment. Please email her at [email protected] to offer your help and get an assignment. If you talk to colleagues at work or friends in your neighborhood, invite them to join the fun! And tell everyone not to miss the evening shows in Bridge Square.
