Bluegrass On The Bay

If you want to attend the Bluegrass On The Bay festival on Friday (July 11th), you might be able to get in for free in exchange for an hour or two of work:

As many of you know, Friday is Bluegrass on the Bay, and their organizing committee is looking for volunteers be gate counters, ticket sellers, and beer sellers. The shifts are approximately an hour and provide you with a free pass into the event, which would otherwise cost $25. If you are interested, contact Tom Figarelle @ 788-1756 or at

Not a bad deal!
