Dublin seeks volunteers for Pride Week celebration starting April 26

This year's theme is 'Coming Together, Building Community'

Volunteers are needed to help as Dublin prepares to celebrate its 30th year of "Dublin Pride," a week-long event taking place Saturday, April 26, through Saturday, May 3.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of maintenance and beautification projects throughout the city.

The theme this year is "Coming Together, Building Community." This annual event seeks to demonstrate ways in which individuals or groups can act to improve the community through volunteerism and environmental awareness. Several faith-based groups and service organizations will assist in providing volunteers and support for this year's program.

In 2013, over 400 volunteers assisted on projects throughout the community, from helping seniors with household maintenance and yard work, to school beautification projects, including painting and yard work. Additionally, volunteers participated in a number of parks and other clean-up projects around the city

"Dublin Pride Week is a great tradition that speaks to the very character of our community," said Mayor Tim Sbranti. "This program demonstrates that, through volunteerism and environmental stewardship, residents can truly impact and make a difference in the city."

The program encourages youth participation and hosts an annual poster contest to engage youth in the event. This year's Dublin Pride Week posters will feature the artwork of Dougherty Elementary School fourth grader Sashank Gadisetti, who was last year's winner.
