Beach Party at White Rock Lake

This weekend, to cap off the lake’s centennial, there will be a beach party at White Rock Lake. Thing is, volunteers are needed. Jump for details.

The Beach Party of the Century only three days away and we urgently need your help especially on Sunday. The Beach Party caps off the Centennial Celebration of our beloved White Rock Lake. The event is Saturday and Sunday June 25th and 26th from 10 am – 10 pm on Saturday and 10 am – 4 pm on Sunday. We need volunteers to help with:

Greeting guests

Assisting arriving and departing guests to board the shuttle buses

Directing traffic in the parking lots at White Rock Station, Norbuck Park, and Flag Pole Hill

Driving people from the shuttle to the entrance (golf carts provided)

Checking in and securing bikes for those who arrive by bicycle

Assisting with children’s games and activities

Checking in volunteers and directing them to assignments

Working sanitation detail (not glamorous but necessary!)

If you can help, please contact Liz Griffin (lizgriffin@yahoo.com), our Volunteer Coordinator. Provide your name, contact information, and day and time you can volunteer.

All volunteers will receive a free t-shirt, admission for themselves and a guest, a hot dog, and a non-alcoholic beverage.

  1. Yes For the Love of the Lake is bringing in sand, live music, antique car show, games, kayak rides and front row for the sail boat and wooden boat parade and fireworks!

    We are expecting a sell out so get your tickets at http://www.whiterocklake.org today!tickets for the two day affair are $15 adult and $5 childrent. Kis under 5 are free!

    If you want to volunteer … you get in free.

    See you there!

  2. I hiked out on Saturday afternoon to see if it was worth the considerable cost of bringing the entire family,–it was completely empty and kind of sad.

    I suspect that is because of the odd decision to ban any sort of vehicle from getting within a mile of the event. This, despite the fact that it’s being held at the Bath House, with maybe 150 parking spaces (far more than the number of attendees, and 3/4 empty when I went by). They went so far as to line Lake Highlands with “no parking” signs,–which is typically legal. I never figured out where you were supposed to park,–Norbuck maybe? But people don’t want to rely on a shuttle (and the only one I saw was a big, open, slow-moving golf cart) and voted with their non-attendance.

    Maybe next century.
