Patrol volunteers needed for Bettendorf parks

Volunteers are needed to help out at Bettendorf Parks during the summer.

The Bettendorf Park and Recreation Department was seeking volunteers to serve as park ambassadors from Memorial Day to Labor Day 2014.

Ambassadors would patrol the city parks and provide help to visitors in need. Their duties would include giving directions, providing information on park activities, watching for vandalism and encouraging users to follow park rules.

Applicants must be 18 or older, in good health, willing to submit to a criminal background check, and must have a valid driver’s license. You do not need to be a Bettendorf resident.

Ambassadors mostly patrol in pairs, so you can pair up with a coworker, friend, family member, or the coordinator can pair you with someone.

Volunteers will be supplied with a hat and shirt to wear on patrol. Patrol shifts last from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m. each night.

A May orientation was scheduled for new park ambassadors to learn rules and procedures.

The application deadline was set for May 1. Applications were available at Bettendorf City Hall, 1609 State Street or at the Bettendorf Community Center, 2204 Grant Street.

If you have questions or need more information call 563-344-7170.
