2. Join A Committee
FrostburgFirst manages several committees who work to improve the quality of our city’s downtown experience. While our Membership and Fundraising committees are limited to representatives from our business members, our Marketing/Promotions, Arts & Entertainment, and Arts Walk committees are open to members of the public who would like to get involved in a more hands-on way. Email us to find out how you can make a measurable difference in our community!
Volunteers are crucial to our downtown’s success. From the Lamppost Committee who preps and hangs our downtown holiday decorations to event planning committees, FrostburgFirst is always looking for volunteers to assist with event programming, set-up and tear down, downtown clean-up days, graphic design assistance, and committee involvement.
