Still time to volunteer for Dunbar festival
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.
