More than 300 volunteers made the 2011 festival possible, according to Suzie Willard, director of public relations.
“The Fishers Freedom Festival is a great way to get involved,” Willard said in a press release. “Individuals of various backgrounds are needed, but everyone is invited. We are also seeking energetic, young and those young-at-heart volunteers who would like to give more of their time.”
Volunteer positions are available for a number of roles, both in preparing for the event and during day-of activities. Additionally, event coordinator positions are open for the following: free games tent, children’s tent, silent auction, kiddie run and grant writing and fundraising.
For those interested, volunteer meetings will be held once a month at 6:30 p.m. at the Fishers Freedom Festival office, 8591 E. 116th St. (the office is located behind the Fritz in Fishers car dealership). Meeting dates are Feb. 27, March 19, April 16, May 21, June 4, June 11 and June 18.
