Independence Day is upon us, and the Chamber of Commerce needs volunteers in several different capacities.

On Tuesday evening, volunteers will be needed to sell raffle and drink tickets at the Deck Party between 3:30 and 8:30 p.m. There will be two shifts.

On the Fourth of July, security will be needed to remind people to honor the traffic barriers on Front Street. This is a task you can do for an hour or so, and then pass the baton to the next volunteer. At noon, volunteers can help tally the scores as they come in from the parade judges.

On July 5, city crews always need help cleaning up. It's particularly important to keep trash out of the bay, so if you'd like to help clean up the beach early in the morning, bring rubber gloves and trash bags.

To volunteer for any of these jobs, contact Pilar Stancliff at 464-3174. For other volunteer opportunities, contact Inez Castor at the Volunteer Center of the Redwoods and RSVP, 464-7876 ext. 136.
