23rd annual ‘Kids Fest’ could use your help

Planning is already under way for the 23rd San Juan Island Children’s Festival, scheduled for May 4. Committee members are needed to help with planning, organizing and coordination of the festival.

The only prerequisite to participate on the festival committee is a willingness and time to work as a team, and a commitment to creating a fun-filled festival dedicated to celebrating children. No special skills are necessary.

With exception of festival day itself, committee members typically volunteer about 6-8 hours per month, beginning in January.

An annual event, the Children’s Festival celebrates children by providing creative, inter-active, educational, entertaining and playful activities.

For info about the festival or how to help, contact Island Rec Director Sally Thomsen, 378-4953, or visit,
