Volunteers Needed To Help Staff Rotary Club’s Children’s Village


Each year during the St. John Festival Celebration, the Rotary Club of St. John hosts a Children’s Village, a drug- and alcohol-free area full of games and activities in the V.I. National Park parking area across from Mongoose Junction.

The club is hoping to keep the tradition alive and is asking for community support. The Children’s Village runs from 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, June 29, through Tuesday, July 3. Volunteers willing to help set up, should arrive at 5:30 p.m. and volunteers who help to close the village and secure games should expect to stay until 9:30 p.m.

The local Rotary Club is looking for about 20 to 25 volunteers for each night of Children’s Village.
