CUMBERLANDFEST VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

CumberlandFest will be 25 years old this year! What is Cumberlandfest? This event is an all volunteer organization that raises funds for our youth sport programs in Cumberland. This event is spearheaded by many Cumberland residents that have not had kids participate in any youth sports programs for many years but they still are dedicated and supportive of our kids and have no problem giving up their invaluable time not only during Cumberlandfest weekend but throughout the year planning for this event. Many of the volunteer committee members have been there since year one!!!. This event is the largest family entertainment draw in Northern RI and it is an event that gives our kids and families a chance to come together for a weekend as a community.All profits after expenses made at CumberlandFest go back into the community to support youth sports programs.

 

CYBSL as well as the other Cumberland youth programs receive funds from CumberlandFest but to receive funds we MUST provide our fair share of volunteers from our organization.  Last year there were 4 youth sports programs (Baseball/softball, Lacrosse, Soccer and hockey) that received $9000 each to support their programs. Each organization receiving funds must provide volunteers throughout the 3 days of the fair to help with tickets, cleaning, parking, setup, security etc. Also help is needed on Wednesday and  Thursday for set-up and Monday for breakdown. The CumberlandFest event will take place at Diamond Hill Park August 7th through 9th.   

 I would like to ask if we could get at least one person from each family to volunteer. Please review the needed volunteer shifts below and reply to John Shevlin- jshevlin@parecorp.com and state the date, shift and job that you can volunteer for.  Please feel free to work as many shifts as you can.  I’ll send out reminders prior to the event to remind you the date and time you signed up for and to remind you to sign in at the green building in the Diamond Hill parking lot so our volunteers will be accounted for.

 

The jobs we need volunteers for are:

 

Midway/Ticket Booth – Adults only 

Parking– we need people to direct traffic in parking lots.  It’s very easy. (18yr and older volunteers only)

Trash- need to pick up bags and misc trash on grounds. Golf cart will be provided for each crew. Another easy task. 

Bingo- Parents and players. 

Set up/Breakdown person- we need people to assist with various setting up and closing down duties.  (Adults and teenagers are welcome to volunteer)

" You had the whole place jumping, right? You had the whole state jumping. You had New England jumping. You had ESPN jumping. OK?

“You want to know why? They like fighters. They like sportsmen. They like guys who don’t quit. They like guys who play the game the right way. If everyone would play baseball like the Cumberland Americans, this would be the greatest game."
