Wanted: a town’s worth of volunteers

By Dee Menear Irregular Staff Writer

KINGFIELD — Kingfield has been selected as one of six host communities for this year’s BikeMaine event sponsored by the Bicycle Coalition of Maine. Cyclists will stop in Kingfield Sept. 11 and organizers are looking for volunteers to help with a plethora of tasks associated with being a host community.

“This is a very big event for Kingfield. We need volunteers to help organize food, set up tents, carry luggage, deal with parking, play taxi, traffic control, cleanup and much more,” stated organizer Tammy Goldfrank.

A fundraising option is available for community groups, such as Girl Scouts or sports teams, for taking on certain tasks.

A planning meeting will be held Thursday, March 16 at 5:30 p.m. at Webster Hall. Anyone interested in helping is encouraged to either attend or contact Goldfrank or Leanna Targett at the town office, 265-4637.

BikeMaine’s Pathway to the Peaks will bring 400 cyclists and their families to the region for a seven-day, 350-mile trek with stops in Skowhegan, Pittsfield, Kingfield, Rangeley, Hartford and Farmington. The event will take place Sept. 9 to 16.
