Volunteers are needed to assist at the annual Adams County Heritage Festival on Sunday, Sept. 20, at the Gettysburg Rec Park. The greatest need is for about 8 people to help with setting up tents, tables, and chairs at around 8 a.m. and with taking them down around 5 p.m. There is also some need for volunteers in other areas, such as handing out programs and directing traffic. Email Nancy Lilley if you can help!

The YWCA Personnel Committee is looking for a representative to serve a 1-year term. See the committee description and email Angie Weaver for more information.

Volunteers are always needed to help in our TLC program (babysitting while members use the facility), to read to children in our Child Enrichment Programs, to serve as On-site Coordinators for our Road Scholar programs, to help with our road races and other special events throughout the year, and to perform general office and clerical needs.
