-The organizers of the upcoming cycling event unPAved of the Susquehanna Valley are looking for volunteers to assist with a wide range of support roles for this major off-road bicycle ride taking place on Sunday, October 14.  If you are available and would like to help out, please see this sign up link for the many different options open:   The contact is Dave Pryor,


-One of our annual events —  Stroll through the Arts/Dance to the Music — is less than a month away, and we need help getting the word out! We are looking for volunteers to each distribute a dozen posters in or around town. Most of the posters are slated to go to downtown merchants, so you could help out your adopted community, get your daily “steps” in, and earn community service hours all at the same time!  Some posters need to go to places like Giant, Weis, and Wal-Mart … so if you have your own transportation, this might be a good fit for you.

We’d love to have all of the posters “claimed” by the end of this week and distributed by mid-month. Posters may be picked up at Faustina’s, 229 Market Street, Lewisburg, (570) 524-5080, Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm.  A call beforehand to let the owner know you’ll be stopping by to pick them up is always appreciated!

If you can help, please contact Della Hutchison, Volunteer Coordinator for the Lewisburg Arts Council, at
