NORTH LIBERTY– In preparation for the ninth annual festival, North Liberty Blues and BBQ, presented by South Slope Cooperative Communications, will launch a volunteer signup on May 1 at northlibertyblues.org/volunteer. The festival requires 200 community volunteers each year, doing jobs as diverse as setting up and tearing down equipment, assisting kids into inflatable rides, serving craft beer, directing cars to parking and much more.
To volunteer simply select a position and time, from the diverse array of options, at northlibertyblues.org/volunteer and then check in at the MidWestOne Volunteer and Information Tent on July 11.
