The United Community Walk is the first event to open the Modesto Blues Festival, and a volunteer and organizing meeting is set for anyone interested in participating as a volunteer with the community walk, art venue, nonprofit participation, and volunteer spots with the blues festival.
Meeting is 6 p.m. at the Alano Club, 1660 Herndon Road, Ceres. Modesto Blues Festival 2008 and the United Community Walk are June 14 at Graceada Park.
Last year's host nonprofit and service organizations were NAMI Stanislaus and National Night Out, but also included citizens, groups from our sponsors, recovery and mental health programs, and included information tables. We wish to build on this to include more nonprofit and service organizations, countywide.
The art venue this year is expanding, and we are using the farmers market art show as a starting point for our theme, support local arts.
So join us or ask JB to put you on our e-mail list for updates, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have questions or can't make it but want to get involved, call John Black at 985-0467.
