A Fantastic Volunteer Opportunity!

Barnstormers Tour


This year's Barnstormers Tour will be held Saturday, June 11, 2016 10 am – 4 pm (rain or shine). This year is the 10th Anniversary and will feature Barns of South Mountain, on and around the back roads between Myersville and Middletown.  
To make the day successful we rely on our volunteers. We need barn tour guides (docents), ticket sellers, and parking guides. We offer full training, tee-shirts, and lunches for our volunteers - as well as a hot dog picnic at the end of the day.  Students are also encouraged to participate, and will receive volunteer credit hours.
