River Festival Volunteers Needed

If you’re heading to the Smoky Hill River Festival next week – you may consider pitching in behind the scenes as part of your weekend plans.

Arts & Humanities Executive Director Brad Anderson joined in on the KSAL Morning News Extra Friday with a call for help. Anderson says they need more volunteers to care for artists, work the entry gates and lend a hand in the children’s activities area.
