Volunteers Sought for WaterFire ‘Beach Bash’

SHARON, Pa. –  WaterFire Sharon is looking for volunteers to work at the July 27 Beach Bash event. 

“Whether you prefer to help stack wood, direct traffic to the appropriate areas for parking, attend to a parking lot, help in the luminary garden area, serve the volunteers lunch, register other volunteers or help shoppers in the merchandise tent, we have a job that you can do,” said Karen Winner Sed, co-chairwoman of WaterFire Sharon, in a statement. “Everyone is welcome.” 

Over 200 volunteers are needed to conduct one WaterFire event. From a week before to the day after the event, the duties of all volunteers vary. Volunteer duties can be found at WaterFireSharonPA.org. Most jobs require a two-hour commitment.

“We regularly hear from our volunteers how much they enjoyed volunteering and they many people they met,” said Winner Sed. “This one will be particularly fun for those who enjoy beach type music and themes.” 

WaterFire Sharon was introduced during the summer of 2013 in downtown Sharon with over 50 braziers placed in the Shenango River filled with cedar and pine. After a full day of  arts and music related to each event’s theme, the evening activities commence with a ceremonial lighting of the braziers.

“It can’t happen without our much needed and much appreciated volunteers,” Winner Sed added. 

Thousands of attendees are drawn to WaterFire Sharon events every year. For more information on WaterFire and volunteer opportunities, call 724 301 1868.
