Mountain Mandarin Festival Seeks Volunteers



mm.jpg

As the Mountain Mandarin Festival has grown from several hundred visitors to 30,000 visitors, the need for volunteers has multiplied.  Festival manager, Gary Gilligan says that in addition to having a great time, Friends of the Festival are asked to work a shift at the Festival assisting vendors, handing out programs, helping with parking, monitoring buildings, or other tasks in the operation of a three-day event. All volunteers will receive a Festival t-shirt. Even though the Festival outgrew the town square of Newcastle years ago, and is held at the Gold Country Fairgrounds in Auburn, it is still presented by the Newcastle Area Business Association (NABA).  Proceeds support the NABA scholarship program and community projects as well as the Newcastle Fire Department who will be manning the admission gates.
