The Carrboro Recreation and Parks dept is seeking volunteers for its upcoming July 4th Celebration, which will take place on Saturday July 4, 2009 from 9:30am-3pm. Volunteers are needed to help with various tasks pertaining to the event. This will qualify for service learning hours.

Children's Activities: Volunteers are needed to assist with fun and interactive children's arts, crafts, games and tattoo booths. Children activities are located at the Carrboro Town Commons and Weaver Street Market.

Info Table: Volunteers are needed to help with t-shirt and raffle ticket sales, as well as help festival goers with questions. Volunteers will be working with Carrboro town staff members.

Stage Attendants: Volunteers are needed to help at the main stage or children’s stage with loading and unloading of equipment.

Recycling/Litter Patrol: Volunteers will help with litter pick-up and recycling throughout the festival. Each volunteer will be provided a vest, gloves and a trash picker. This is a great opportunity to walk around the event and hear the music while still keeping Carrboro beautiful. This is also a good volunteer opportunity for groups.
