Volunteers Needed!

Abingdon Main Street is looking for a few good men and women to volunteer this summer.  The most urgent need is for volunteers at the Thursday night beer gardens, but we also need volunteers for the Wolf Committee, Main Street Buskerfest, and volunteers with expertise in the area of historic preservation and design, economic development, and promotions.

Do you have what it takes? Call us at 492-2237 or email mainstreet@abingdon-va.gov

Volunteers are the backbone of the organization, and we LOVE them!

Each volunteer who meets the minimum number of hours over the course of a year will receive and Abingdon Main Street T-shirt and an invitation to the Volunteer Appreciation Party.
