“I Love Clarion” Celebration in Need of Volunteers

The “I Love Clarion” Celebration is scheduled for Monday, July 3 at the Clarion Mall. Activities begin at 4pm. There will be food vendors, craft vendors, children’s games, music and fireworks. In order for this event to be successful we need help. We are reaching out for volunteers to help with both children’s games as well as to run the Chamber trailer selling drinks and t-shirts, etc. If we can get enough volunteers, we’d like to keep the commitment to 1 hour intervals. This will give those generous with their time a chance to help out, and then have the opportunity to enjoy the festivities with their families.

We are also still looking for donations towards the cost of the fireworks themselves. So if you would like to volunteer at least an hour of your time to help make this a successful event, or would like to donate to help make our fireworks display the great show we all know and love, please contact the Clarion Chamber office at 814-226-9161, stop by our office at 650 Main Street or email tracy@clarionpa.com.
