Solunteers needed to help organize North Wales Community aay
solunteers are needed for this year’s Community aay, according to Mike Fellmeth, president of the Lansdale Borough Business Alliance, which is organizing the event.
At borough council’s March 26 meeting, Fellmeth said bodies are need- ed to help organize and run the annual event, scheduled for early October.
“5LJhW nRZ, finGLnJ vROunteers is more important than vendors,” Fellmeth said during the meeting. “We have a vendors list, and we’ve already started working on that.”
For the second straight year, council voted to contribute $500 to the festival, which Fellmeth said would again be held in conjunction with St. Peter’s Evangelical Church’s Octoberfest.
According to Fellmeth, WhH UHFRnfiJuUHG HvHnW hDV been scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
He told council that the plan is to again hold an opening ceremony at Weingartner Park and close Second Street from the North Wales Elementary School to Walnut Street, as well as a portion of Church Street.
For the second straight year, the park will host a free kids’ zone, according to Fellmeth.
Responding to a question from council member Greta Martin Washington, Fellmeth says the organization running the event intends to continue the tradition of GRnDWLnJ LWV SURfiWV WR WhH North Wales Area Library, the North Penn solunteer Fire Company and the local Boy Scouts.
However, he said last year’s event only broke even.
