The Celtic Heritage Alliance will be hosting volunteer meetings for persons wishing to volunteer for the upcoming Newport Celtic Festival & Highland Games slated for June 7, 8 & 9. You do not have to have Celtic heritage to apply – all volunteers are welcome.
The Celtic Heritage Alliance (CHA) is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization whose mission is to promote and preserve Celtic culture on the Oregon coast through creation and development of Celtic cultural events, activities, and programs which facilitate education, workshops, musical performances and traditional competitions which include athletics, music and dance. Their efforts were validated by the State of Oregon when they were accepted as members of the Oregon Cultural Trust in October 2012.
Anyone wishing to volunteer is encouraged to join CHA’s upcoming meetings and training sessions which will be held at 35 NW Nye Street in the Newport Public Library’s McEntee Meeting Room on Monday, April 1st and on Monday, May 6th from 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm.
Volunteers will meet past volunteers and receive an activities overview and orientation and will be personally trained by individual Team Leaders.
Persons interested in volunteering will find additional information and forms online at www.newportcelticfestival.com or may contact Volunteer Team Leader, Rebecca Cohen, at firstname.lastname@example.org
