BE THE BLUES

Nothin’ beats the blues like being a part of them. Downtown Springfield, Inc. is looking for volunteers to help with its 2011 Old Capitol Blues and BBQs event, a street celebration scheduled for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 26 and 27.

The event, which features a BBQ competition and various styles of live blues music, starts at 5 p.m. on Friday and noon on Saturday, lasting until midnight each day. This is the first year in its eight-year history that the event has included Friday night activities.

Organizers need volunteers for shifts lasting at least two hours before and during the event. Volunteers can help set up, tear down, check visitor identification or sell food tickets, among other jobs.

The event requires about 200 volunteers total, and organizers are still looking for about 20 volunteers on both Friday and Saturday, says Diane Covington, DSI’s volunteer coordinator. Volunteers can range in age, and DSI can sign-off on service hours for students.

For more information about volunteer opportunities, contact Covington at 217-622-3009. For more information about Old Capitol Blues and BBQs, visit www.downtownspringfield.org
