B.C. Games organizers aim to attract volunteers

Organizers of the 2014 Nanaimo B.C. Summer Games are hosting a family event Saturday (Feb. 8) to drum up support and volunteers for the upcoming event.

The event, set for Woodgrove Centre from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., features entertainment, displays, cake and speeches from local dignitaries, including Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan and Games president Jeff Lott.

More than 3,200 volunteers are needed for a successful Games. A wide range of opportunities is available, with volunteers on-hand at Saturday's event to help people who are interested find a position that's right for them.

The Nanaimo 2014 B.C. Summer Games will take place July 17-20. There are 19 sports represented in the Games, with approximately 3,900 athletes, coaches and officials participating from across the province
