Ken Lake Volunteers

Ken Lake 4th of July 2019

Events on the 4th of July need many hands to help make the day a success!  Volunteers are needed to put out flags, assist with bike race, set up tents, fill drink containers, set up the park, and manage games/activities. If we don't have volunteers to manage each activity or event, those activities will be canceled.  

Call Wendy Harris at 786-8988 or email [email protected] with any questions. 

Thanks for helping your community!
