The following was submitted by the Marblehead Festival of Arts:
The Marblehead Festival of Arts’ primary fundraising effort will begin Saturday, March 10, with the preparation of the annual Friends-of-the-Festival Mailing, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. It will be held at the Gerry No. 5 Veteran Fireman’s Association Hall, 210 Beacon Street, Marblehead (next to the Community Store). Many hands are needed to prepare mail packets that will be sent to businesses and households in Marblehead, Swampscott and other nearby towns.
Festival President Lynne DeVoe says “Funds are needed to underwrite the Festival of Arts, a community-wide celebration that will take place this year June 30 – July 4. On March 10, we will reach out to donors to help support this great event.”
DeVoe encourages everyone to come over for an hour or more anytime during the day and bring some helpful friends or family members. Snacks will be provided. “The Friends Mailing is a great opportunity to support the Festival, meet other volunteers, learn about upcoming Festival events and have fun,” she added.
Please note that parking is available, and volunteers should use the side entrance.
