“It’s about building community, meeting new people, and making new friends,” said Chairperson/Founder Audrey Sundstrom. “It’s a great opportunity to get the ‘inside view’ at our free, family friendly, live jazz festival!”

Three-hour shifts are available to assist in presenting this event to the community. All volunteers will receive a T-shirt, bottled water and the opportunity to help put on this free public event in the community.
