RiverPark looking for new program coordinator

COOLEEMEE — Excited about beginning a new phase of development on the Davie County side, the RiverPark Board has now decided to hire a part-time program coordinator, says President Daphne Beck.
Seeing a need to boost excitement, attendance and revenues for its two annual events, the new coordinator will concentrate on building for the July 23 Great Bullhole Duck Race and RiverPark’s Annual Catfish Fry to be held on Oct. 15 this year.
“This is a real need,” says John Peeler, who has served on the board since the RiverPark opened in 2003. “Our March 5 work day was such a success, and a lot more people are wanting to volunteer their time. It all needs to get organized.”
Duties for the part-time position will include building volunteer event committees for each fundraiser, doing promotions and soliciting business sponsors and expanding their offerings. In addition to events, the coordinator will organize volunteer work days, periodic kids activities at the park and publish an occasional newsletter for Friends of the Bullhole.
“The idea is to expand the circle of good will and stewardship of this unique place,” says Beck.
RiverPark leaders are looking for strong writing and marketing experience, someone who is able to operate desktop publishing software, works well with people and is a self-starter. They are also looking for someone who loves The Bullhole, and is “willing to put their all” into their work,” a press release said.
Applications will be available beginning Saturday. Pick one up at the Zachary House or on weekdays at Town Hall in Cooleemee, the Chamber of Commerce in Mocksville or in Salisbury at the LandTrust office at the old railway depot.
