North East Chamber of Commerce needs volunteers for this year’s Wine Festival, set for September 23-25.

Volunteers are needed to help at Admissions, the Souvenir and Information Tents in both Gravel Pit and Heard Parks, and at the Chamber of Commerce Food Pavilion in Gravel Pit Park.

The Chamber is also looking for volunteers to assist with the Bed Races, the Fine Arts Show, and the decorating of all three parks.

If you are able to donate a few hours of your time, please call the Chamber at 725-4262 or stop in the office at 17 E. Main St. to sign up. Your help will be greatly appreciated.

All volunteers will be scheduled for 3-hour shifts, and will be given a free ticket to the festival good for the day they are volunteering.

Volunteers interested in pouring samples at one of the wine tents are asked to contact the North East Arts Council member Diane at 725-4422 or Beth at 725-5348; McCord Library at 725-4057; or Tracy Jones from Downtown North East, Inc. at 725-4831.
