Volunteers needed for Civil War Sesquicentennial

WLNI-SThousands are expected to visit Lynchburg and the region to attend the sesquicentennial events in Appomattox. To help visitors get around the Lynchburg Regional Convention & Visitors Bureau is partnering with Appomattox County to provide free shuttle service during the busiest times of the sesquicentennial festivities. The buses will run from 7 a.m. into late evening Thursday through Sunday, April 9th-12th. The LRCVB is asking for volunteers to help give those using the shuttles a positive experience. Volunteers will help people find shuttle stops and get them acclimated to the Appomattox schedule and locations. Other volunteers will ride the shuttles and highlight downtown amenities. Shifts will be 4 hours each and there will be a brief volunteer training on Tuesday April 7th from 11 a.m. to noon or 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. in the City Council Chamber on Church Street.
