Still time to volunteer for Dunbar festival

| Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010

As the finishing touches are being placed on Saturday's 2010 Dunbar Community Fest, organizers are still looking for volunteers.

"We always need volunteers for the day," said festival organizer Cindy Moag.

Volunteer duties can be anything from helping with traffic during the Pechin Red Dress Race to selling tickets.

"Any volunteer we can find, we'll find them a job," Moag said, adding that being a volunteer is an opportunity for someone to see the Community Fest from a different perspective.

Those interested in becoming a volunteer can do so by contacting Moag at 724-628-6716.

This year's Dunbar Community Fest includes the following old favorites and what may become new traditions:

• Tickets will be $1 for rides for the carriage, pony rides, barrel train and speeder train.

• Bluegrass music will take place in the entertainment tent at 7 p.m. Friday evening featuring the Dunbar Boys with Perry Russell heading the program with others lined up to perform.

• Mugs will be sold for $10 (last year's mugs are on sale for $5) at the Dunbar Historical Society and "My Town, Dunbar, PA" T-shirts, long and short-sleeved, will be sold for $15 and hats for $10. They will be sold by Linda Rechenberg at the duck derby booth.

• The first three ducks to finish the Duck Derby race will receive prices. The last duck removed from the water will win a free ticket for next year's derby.

• The Dunbar Community Fest parade will begin at the old borough school and then continue to the Kountry Klub at the train tracks and end at the fire department. This year's parade marshal will be Charles Crouse.

• Approximately 16 craft and flea vendors will be set up for the fest as well as eight churches will be participating.

• This year's skit will be "A Tribute to the Music of the 60s" featuring The Beatles, Sonny and Cher, The Ronettes, Nancy Sinatra and The King.

• The car show will take place at the Dunbar Volunteer Fire Department and will be DJ'd by Rege Lowman with Sharon Burnsworth handling registrations. Dash plaques will be given to each participant and the winner will receive a trophy. A judge for the car show is still needed.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
