Riverfest looks for volunteers
Beloit Riverfest has a great line up of acts, but not enough volunteers.
The annual summer music festival is said to be shaping up in all areas except for one. Riverfest Volunteer Coordinator Mary Furman says there's plenty to be done. Unfortunately only about 50 volunteers have signed up, and the festival has need for more than 500. Duties include manning the ticket gates, security, and keeping the grounds clean. Furman says civic groups can volunteer as well, and donations might be provided.
She asks anyone interested please visit www.beloitriverfest.com, or come to the Riverfest office is at 520 East Grand Avenue in Beloit.
