Locals: Be a part of the Arts Fest
The 2010 Kimball Arts Festival is a community celebration of art, music, food and film, and the organizers need your support. "The Kimball Art Center is a non-profit community art center with a staff of only 12 full and part-time employees," says Lauren Vitulli, Volunteer Coordinator for the Festival. "Hosting a festival of this size is a huge undertaking for such a small staff, so we depend heavily on our superb volunteer force."
Vitulli assumed the role of Volunteer Coordinator for the 2009 festival and will be organizing the teams again this year. "Volunteers are the backbone of our event, and we couldn’t do it without them," she says. Vitulli encourages people to sign up with friends and family members so they can spend the day together while supporting the festival. Many parents volunteer with their kids, which is a great way to introduce them to community service. Four-hour shifts allow plenty of time to enjoy the festival and the exclusive lounge where volunteers enjoy lunch, refreshments and other great benefits. Combining community service with the opportunity to enjoy all the festival has to offer is a great way to get together with old friends, make new ones and also support the Kimball Art Center. "We really try to make it fun for our volunteers," she adds.
The fun factor must be working, judging from the following testimonials from some of last year’s helpers:
Come be a part of art. Join the Kimball Art Center as a volunteer Aug. 6, 7 or 8 and receive benefits including a collectable 2010 Arts Festival T-shirt; free meal, snacks and refreshments; weekend pass to the festival; Knead-a-Massage gift certificate, a $35 value to use for a free 30-minute massage or to apply toward a more luxurious service; plus plenty of laughter, fun, frivolity and new friendships.
