Volunteers sought for Boy Scout event

BECKLEY, W.Va. — Approximately 200 volunteers are being sought for help in the parking area during the upcoming Boy Scout Jamboree. Paul Hutchinson is organizing the effort in Beckley where those interested need to be willing to spend four hours a day for six days helping out with a massive undertaking.

“Some would work four hours in the morning and some woudl work four hours in the afternoon,” Hutchinson said. “I need them from the 15th through the 24th.”

The work will involve helping to direct cars into parking spaces at the parking area behind the Sunoco station at the Bradly exit near Crossroads Mall on U.S. Route 19 in Beckley. There will also be some minor security work.

“Some of the volunteers will be asked to do bag checks,”Hutchinson said. “Nothing like Homeland Security, just ask people to open their bag and we go in with a stick or wand and look around.”

Other volunteers will have jobs helping to issue day passes to the thousands expected to be in the area for the event. A volunteer tent will be provided with an area to cool off and rest. Drinks and snacks will also be provided.

As a reward for the volunteer effort, those who donate their time will be granted a grounds pass for the Summit Bechtel campus and a tour of the facility anytime during the week.

To volunteer contact Hutchinson at 304-890-4733 or e-mail
