This announcement doesn’t exactly qualify as a schools item, but it does sound like fun with kids so I’m cheating a bit.

Volunteers are needed and wanted for the 6th annual Fall Festival at Tolay Lake Regional Park. The festival runs Oct. 13-16 and 19-23.

Volunteers can sign up to assist staff with the heritage craft booths, Night Time Creatures Barn, old fashioned game area, hay wagon rides and/or at the pumpkin patch.

All volunteers receive training, a free park pass, a festival t-shirt and lunch.

Interested? Contact county volunteer coordinator John Ryan at 565-3356 or at
