“Each year our participants compliment our volunteer corps on their knowledge, enthusiasm and professionalism,” said Lori A. Factor, festival coordinator. “Our volunteers are crucial to the festival’s success and offer a personal touch to make this event successful.”

Those needing service hours logged, such as that for National Honor Society and sorority or fraternity service, may also participate. Service verification forms will be completed.
