Premier Southwest Festival Needs Volunteers

Image635078247894944704[Flagstaff, AZ – June 26, 2013]  The call for volunteers for one of the fastest growing and best-loved bluegrass festivals has gone out.

David Benjamin, Volunteer Coordinator for Pickin’ In The Pines, says they could not have such an amazing festival without the many volunteers that donate a minimum of two four-hour shifts over the weekend.

In exchange for their time, volunteers are given a free pass to the entire festival.

The online application only allows for one volunteer per computer however.  Benjamin suggests mailing hard copy applications for additional volunteers if necessary.
