Friends of Baker Park, Inc., is a non-profit, volunteer-staffed community service organization dedicated to fostering community involvement with Frederick City Government in the preservation, restoration, use, and maintenance of Baker Park. We’re also proponents of supporting activities in the park that contribute so much to making Frederick City a great place to live, work, and play. Celebrate Frederick recently distributed an email seeking volunteers to assist with several activities taking place in Baker Park on the 4th of July. We’re relaying this in case you or someone you know can help out and also so you can start planning to take advantage of these activities if your holiday includes staying in town to enjoy the park and evening fireworks. Activities and links are below; contact Corinne Farneti of Celebrate Frederick at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
If you or someone you know are interested in helping as a volunteer at Baker Park’sJuly 4th celebration, just go to http://www.celebratefrederick.com/volunteer to sign up. We are recruiting for barricade monitors, staff at our peanut butter and jelly tent, and volunteers for our information booths.
