Got time on your hands next month?

Volunteers are needed to help run a day-long event to raise money to rebuild the Guilford VFW hall on Mill Road.

VetsFest 2010 will be held at Fireman’s Field from noon to 9 p.m.July 24 and will feature family-friendly activities such as a moon bounce, face painting and touch a truck, as well as an exciting list of local bands: In the Pocket, In the Pink, 4 Barrel Billy and CROSSEYED CAT, organizers said in a statement.

One hundred percent of the proceeds of the event will help defray the costs of rebuilding the facility that houses the Edward A. Norton VFW, Post 7666, the statement said.

The estimated cost to rebuild the hall is $750,000, the statement said. Local builders and architects will donate their time to help build the new hall at cost, the statement said.
