Help needed to welcome whales
April 7, 2011 · 8:26 AM
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 email@example.com or 360-678-3451.
