Rossland’s Golden City Days committee looking for volunteers

One local group is looking ahead to Rossland’s Golden City Days in September and calling for volunteers.

With spring just around the corner many Rosslanders are eagerly anticipating warmer days and the sight of that first crocus in bloom!

However, one small group of locals is looking further ahead, all the way to September and Rossland’s Golden City Days 2012 celebration.

Planning for this annual family event has already begun and the first meeting of organizers is set for early April.

We hope to come up with some new event ideas, fun local entertainment and food and craft vendors, as well as to bring back some Golden City Days favourites like “Stake your Claim” and the Saturday morning parade.

Would you or your organization like to help? Perhaps you are interested in joining the organizing committee, putting on some Yoga or Zumba in the park, organizing a volleyball or bocce tournament, vending your home made goodies and crafts, performing a puppet or magic show or pulling together an air band contest.

If so, we would love to hear from you.

If you can spare an hour or two on the weekend of Sept. 7, 8 and 9, helping where needed around town, please let us know.

The success of events such as Golden City Days depends on the support of our community and we need your help.

Please consider what you or your group could bring to the weekend.

For more information or to pass on your ideas please contact us

Terry at rbrinson@telus.net or Hilary at gcdparade@telus.net

Hope to hear from you! See you at Golden City Days!
