Help needed to welcome whales

Organizers of the Welcome the Whales celebration in Langley are looking for volunteers.

Opportunities to help at the April 24 event range from overseeing and assisting in costume-making activities, posting flyers on parked cars before the parade, helping with set up and take down, or helping to carry Gary, the 20-foot gray whale, and other large critters in the parade.

The Orca Network is especially looking for volunteers interested in doing a costume-making activity using recycled products or thrift-store goods.

Organizers are also inviting environmental organizations to bring educational displays to the event. Local businesses can get into the action by creating window displays with any whale-related items that merchants carry in their stores.

To volunteer or support the event, contact Susan Berta at or 360-678-3451.
