|Grand Cities Art Fest seeks volunteers|
How can you have a great time, make a big difference and get a cool T-shirt? By volunteering at the Grand Cities Art Fest, to be held June 14-15, in downtown Grand Forks and East Grand Forks.
Grand Cities Art Fest 2008 features more than 130 fine art and high-quality craft vendors, regional food vendors, Kidâ€™s Corner, live entertainment, NoVACâ€™s Arts in Action Square and more!
â€œFirstLink will field calls from potential volunteers, placing them with an activity based on the hours they can work, their skills and interests,â€ says Benjamin Klipfel, event manager. â€œEvents like the Art Fest generate particular interest in volunteering because folks can show up, help out and feel good about it â€” without a long-term commitment.â€
Volunteers are needed to assist with blocking streets, provide information to guests, sell merchandise, assist with event take-down and more. Call FirstLink at (701) 746-5463 for a variety of shifts and duties, or visit them online at http://www.volunteersolutions.org/firstlink/org/opp/10276478068.html.
The Grand Cities Art Fest is sponsored in part by the Downtown Leadership Group, the North Valley Arts Council, Qwest Communications, the Xcel Energy Foundation, KVLY TV-11, Leighton Broadcasting and the Grand Forks Herald.
