Volunteers sought for Cabin Fever event
Bolton Free Library is still seeking help for its second annual Cabin Fever fundraiser, set for Saturday, Feb. 19.
In its debut year, it attracted a tremendous crowd that was enthusiastic about this social event which dissipated the doldrums of winter. This year, the Cabin Fever Cure-All, which raises money for the Bolton Library, is to be held at the Town Garage in order to accommodate the large crowd that's anticipated. The Cabin Fever Cure-All includes gourmet food donated by local restaurants, live music by Bill Campbell and the Blue Moon band, and a tropical theme which is envisioned to include extensive props and decorations.
Donations and volunteers are still being sought by the event organizers. Folks who would like to volunteer time or ideas, call Megan Baker at 644-2233 or Emma Calautti at: 644-3128.
