Volunteer for Bluegrass fest

Help needed to kick off first event for Albion flats

You don’t have to be a musician to volunteer for the inaugural True North Bluegrass Festival on the Labour Day long weekend at the Albion Fairgrounds in Maple Ridge.

If you aren’t already a bluegrass music fan, you will be by the end of the event.

Organizers want volunteers to sign up for one or more four hour shifts Aug. 29 to Sept. 1.

“This new festival belongs to the entire community and we want everyone to feel they can be part of the success of this inaugural event. It’s going be a fantastic festival,” said coordinator Robert Hornsey.

An information session takes place today at 7 p.m. – Wednesday, Aug. 14 at the Randy Herman building opposite the RCMP detachment.
