ROCKLAND — The Maine Lobster Festival is seeking companies and student service groups to volunteer at the 65th annual event, taking place Wednesday through Sunday, Aug. 1-5.
Specifically, the directors who oversee the volunteer force need help from companies to staff the Eating Tent at the festival during the day Saturday, Aug. 4. Small or large companies may volunteer and they will be recognized for their service with their name on a sign at the entrance to the tent. The four-hour shifts are 10 a.m.-2 p.m., 2-6 p.m., and 6-10 p.m.
Student groups also are needed to help clean up the Eating Tent, and should include five to six middle-school age children with one or two adults to supervise. The festival will donate $100 to the student group per four-hour shift.
To volunteer or to help with another aspect of the Maine Lobster Festival during the event, call Laurie Smith at 542-2495, e-mail email@example.com or sign up at MaineLobsterFestival.com.
