Dogwood Festival Dunk Tank- volunteers needed
The Dogwood Festival is just around the corner, May 10th to the 15th. Rides, games, food, and fun will be filling Reeves Park.

This year, the Phoenixville Jaycees will be running a dunk tank everyday of the festival and we are looking for leaders of the community to "dunk." The funds raised will help us continue to put on great events such as the Burn Off the Bird 5k, Date Auction, and Community Cleanups all of which allow us to give back to the community.

We are looking for people to get a little bit wet from Monday May 10th to Friday May 14th from 6pm until 9pm and on Saturday May 15th from 4pm until 9pm.

If you are available, please contact me at jenniferandre@comcast.net with what date(s) and time(s) you can participate.

For more information about the Dogwood Festival, please visit the Phoenixville Jaycees website or send them an email at phoenixvillejaycee@gmail.com.
