Lack of Volunteers Worries DBCA

The community group hasn't gotten many volunteers to help decorate Doylestown this Saturday.

If more volunteers don't step forward, Doylestown Borough's traditional snowflake decorations might not fly.

The group that organizes the holiday decorations each winter said Wednesday it hasn't gotten many volunteers to pledge to help hang up the decorations this Saturday.

"Please think about coming out to help," Margie Adamsky said Wednesday.

Adamsky, office manager for the Doylestown Business and Community Alliance, reached out to group members again this week to try to drum up more help.

The DBCA leads efforts to beautify downtown Doylestown for the seasons. In summer, they hang baskets of flowers on the lampposts. In winter, they hang metal-frame, LED snowflakes on the the lampposts.

The group needs volunteers to gather in the heart of town on Saturday morning and help hoist the town's snowflake decorations into place on the borough's lampposts.

Volunteers should meet at State and Main in front of Starbucks at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 10.

If you have an electric drill with an 8mm socket and extension, or an electric screwdriver or a flathead screwdriver, please bring them, along with a 6-foot ladder, if you have one.

As usual, coffee and donuts will be provided.

If the weather doesn't cooperate, the rain date will be Saturday, Nov. 17.

If you can't help out on Saturday, volunteers also are needed on Friday evening to help unload the snowflakes from the DBCA trailer, test the bulbs and load the decorations onto a borough trailer.

Meet at the borough public works yard at the end of Harvey Avenue at 6 p.m.

Let the DBCA know you can help by calling 215-340-9988 or emailing info@doyletownalligance.org.
