Godspeed Sail Festival - "Arlington Day" County Government Opportunities 55+ Opportunities
Last updated on May 12, 2006

Volunteers are needed on Tuesday, May 30, to help out at the Godspeed Sail Festival in Old Town, Alexandria. May 30 has been designated "Arlington Day" and we need about 20 volunteers to help staff two information booths and provide safety services for pedestrians.

The Godspeed is a newly-commissioned replica of one of the ships that landed at Jamestown in May 1607. She will help launch America's 400th Anniversary celebration an 80-day sail to six major ports along the eastern seaboard -- one of which is Alexandria. The Godspeed will be docked in Alexandria from May 27-June 3.

Join in the excitement of the "Landing Party" - featuring live musical performances, family entertainment, historical and cultural displays highlighting the legacies of Jamestown and the growth of America -- all within a 30,000 square foot festival area. A Volunteer Orientation will be held on Wednesday, May 17 from 7 pm to 8:30 pm at the Torpedo Factory Arts Center, 105 N. Union St. in Old Town, Alexandria. Assignments and shifts will be determined at that time (length of shifts will be 2 hours).

If you are interested in volunteering, please send your full name, email address, phone number and hours you would be available to help to Joan McDermott, Chair, Arlington Committee on Jamestown 2007 (contact information below). Ability to work effectively with the general public is desirable.
