Bethlehem Harvest Festival in need of a few good volunteers

October 1, 2013 by  

As the city of Bethlehem gears up for its 8th annual Harvest Festival, the festival planners are in need of volunteers to help the event run smoothly.

The Downtown Bethlehem Association in need of up to 15 people to help set up the festival, with responsibilities including hanging up signs, putting up tables, and placing trash and recycling bins around the area. The festival could use flyer printing to provide the signs and posters need during the event. After it starts, set-up volunteers are free to enjoy the rest of the day.

During the event, the Association also needs up to 50 people to serve on the Brew Crew. These volunteers will work in shifts from noon until 5:30 pm. They will help pour beer, keep an eye on the pie-eating contest, and work at the information booth. Some volunteers will also be needed to help supervise the children’s activities.

Lastly, volunteers are also needed to help restore order at the end of the festival. The cleanup crew will take down tables, pick up trash, and restore Main Street to its original state. The Association is looking for about 15 volunteers for this duty.

People interested in volunteering can reach out to Emily Gerber at 610-739-1273. Anyone can volunteer, but children under the age of 16 will need to have an adult with them. The event takes place on October 12, starting at 11:00 am and going on until 8:00 pm.
