Assist Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority, Clean Ups and more!

Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority has a number of volunteer needs:

Spooktacular Trunk or Treat: Sunday, October 29th from 4-7pm
  • We are in need of volunteers to help with our 2nd Annual Trunk or Treat Spooktacular. The event is held at the Cellars at Brookpark.  GPS address, 50 Brookpark Circle Lewisburg.   This event is two events in one.  We have a free Trunk or Treat in the parking lot, where kids trick or treat from car to car.  There is a free costume contest with trophies at 5:30pm also in the lot.  Inside the Cellars there is a Spooktacular Halloween Carnival.  It is $5 for each kid under 10 years old.
  • We need volunteers to help staff the event.  It should be fun.  We are encouraging volunteers to come in child appropriate costumes.  (I feel like I need to specify this, maybe not)  There is an online sign up to run games or the photo both or other fun stuff.
  • We need groups who would be interested in bringing a car and having a trunk.  Perhaps a Fraternity or Sorority.  It’s basically handing out candy in costume for service hours.
Rail Trail Cleanup: Saturday, November 4th at 10am
  • Our Fall trail cleanup will start at 10 am.  We anticipate being done around noon to 1pm.  We encourage groups to bring a car so we can send people out on the trail.  We are meeting at Earls to coordinate and give out snacks.  I would like to get a couple groups of people would could help us prune and trim back weeds.
  • Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, and long sleeved shirts and pants.  We will provide gloves and trash bags.
  • Interested volunteers should email Sarah Biddle at
Flat ‘n Fast 5k/10k: Saturday, November 11th at 10am
Painting Indoors at the Former Lewisburg High School:
  • Need volunteer or judicial hours.  Painters are needed weekdays between 10am and 3pm.  Please contact Stacey Sommerfield if you are interested.  The location is walkable from Bucknell and many hours are available.


The Historical Society and Linn Conservancy have chosen Nov. 11 for the fall cleanup at the Dale-Engle-Walker property (1471 Strawbridge Rd. Lewisburg).  We will begin at 9am and finish by noon.  Work will involve chores around the house such as raking leaves and perhaps some work along the Dale’s Ridge Trail.  Students should wear closed-toe shoes (no sandals) and dress for the weather.  We will provide gloves, tools and refreshments.  Those interested should contact Jeannette Lasansky ( ) by Nov. 6 so that we have an idea of numbers and can plan our day.


Volunteers are needed for the Fall Day 10K on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at the future YMCA location next to Weis Markets in Lewisburg.

Volunteers will attend an information meeting during the week prior to the event.
On the day of the race, volunteers should report at 8:15am and should be finished approximately 11:30am. For questions or to sign up, please contact Angela at
