2.3 Carleton County Music Festival needs YOU!
Hey there local art supporters! Just wanted to put a bug in your ear
about the Carleton County Music Festival, coming this April 12 - 27.
Over this two week period many young people will have the opportunity
to showcase their hard work in their various musical endeavours. The
CCMF committee relies on the help of volunteers to keep the festival
running smoothly. I'm sure that many of you have participated in the
festival over the years, now is your chance to give back!
We are looking for people to volunteer a few hours during the day to
do things like watch the door, check in participants and assist the
adjudicators. If you think you might have an hour or two to spare, and
would like to support young musicians in Carleton County then please
consider being a volunteer! Interested parties may contact Julie Craig
(julie.craig at gnb.ca), or any member of the CCMF committee. Thanks for
your consideration :D
