Volunteer spots still open for Rossland Winter Carnival

The Rossland Winter Carnival has seen an influx of volunteer support over the last few weeks, but is still in need of more help.

The Rossland Winter Carnival has seen an influx of volunteer support over the last few weeks, but is still in need of more help.

Lisa Wegner, Winter Carnival committee member, said that volunteer recruitment tables will once again be at Ferrero Foods and the carnival would welcome more hands to help.

“We’ve had a great response,” she said.

Wegner noted that they still need volunteers for two hour intervals on Thursday, Jan. 26 from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to help with snow sculptures, which would mostly involve stomping snow.

The Saturday morning bobsled prep needs volunteers. The job starts at 8 a.m. and goes for an hour and a half.

There is also a need for volunteers in the kid’s carnival on Sunday Jan. 29, from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Volunteers that are looking at what times are available for each day can go to www.rosslandwintercarnival.com.

“Volunteers can take a look at the schedule of events and things like that,” Wegner said. “Any amount of time that they can put in we really appreciate – any amount that the volunteers can sign up for.”
