Sioux Narrows has a long history of stepping up and helping one another. This summer, the Sioux Narrows Arts Council is looking for local volunteers interested in helping to plan and execute 60th Anniversary Arts Festival events in accordance with the changing COVID-19 pandemic regulations.
We are looking for seasoned and new volunteers who are available for two or more hours. We will keep available people updated on various volunteer opportunities as they arise.
We are also looking for individuals to help with bookkeeping, exhibits, music and children’s art.
