Volunteers Welcome at Kickoff

by Lisa Hamm-Greenwalt

(Feb. 11 2004) – We need you! That is the battle cry of the official kickoff meeting for the annual Mamaroneck Village Historic Harbor Street Fair on Thursday, Feb. 26, 2004, at 7:30 pm in the Mamaroneck Library community room.

Anyone who wants to be involved in launching this year’s street fair to be held Sunday, June 13 is invited to come, according to Fair co-organizer Carolyn Pomeranz. “This is a true community-wide all-volunteer effort, and our event team is like a big family representing the best of our village,” she said. “To ensure a success, we need everyone to help us out,” Pomeranz added.

Last year’s inaugural Historic Harbor Street Fair was considered a huge success, attracting about 20,000 people for activities that included Revolutionary War and Civil War encampments, three tall sailing ships, a re-creation of a 1940’s USO canteen, a tribute to Mamaroneck’s golden silent movies era, and a historical view of Mamaroneck through a collection of vintage photographs, food court, continuous live entertainment, and much more.

“This year’s fair will capture the best of last year, with many new and exciting attractions,” said co-organizer Sunny Goldberg, “you won’t want to miss it!”

Hundreds of volunteers are needed to fill 16 working committees, including food, entertainment, publicity, marketing, art and antiques, fund-raising, historical events, harbor activities, and more. If you’d like to help, but can’t attend the meeting, please call Volunteer Coordinator Joann Turits at (914) 698-4511 (home), (212) 545-0032 (work) or pwtjmt at aol.com.

The Mamaroneck Library community room is located through the Emelin Theatre entrance on Library Lane.
