Volunteers needed for Music Series:
Looking for a fun and meaningful opportunity to help build community and bring people together? Do you love music? Then join the committee to plan and run the sixth annual Whitneyville Music Series in DeNicola Park to be held in 2020. Without new volunteers, the series cannot continue and these special events will not return next summer.
