Depoe Bay Asks For Volunteers Over Eclipse Weekend

The City of Depoe Bay is seeking volunteers to help during the upcoming solar eclipse in August. Due to the unprecedented number of visitors anticipated during the week of Aug 17 through the 20, preceding the solar eclipse itself on Monday, Aug. 21, the City of Depoe Bay is actively recruiting volunteers to help perform the many tasks necessitated by this event.

Individuals who are willing to take on different duties, such as answering questions, giving directions, handing out brochures, distributing eclipse glasses and giving instructions for use, emptying garbage cans, etc., are asked to step forward to help out during this event. Volunteer shifts are four hours long, and volunteers will be needed all hours during the five-day period from Friday, Aug. 17, through Monday, Aug. 21.

With so many time slots and tasks to be performed, there are openings to fit any schedule. No matter how many, or how few, hours, or days, you can contribute, your services will be appreciated. For insurance reasons, all volunteers must be 18-years-old or older. To learn more contact Volunteer Coordinator Jan Speer, at 541-764-0297.
