The success of the Ridge Spring Harvest Festival depends on the community pulling together and helping. We understand that its not always easy to find time to volunteer but this festival is a celebration of hard working people. Its a time for everyone to relax and enjoy each others company and to spend quality time with your family. The more volunteers we have the easier each task will be. As a quote I saw says " volunteers never have the time; they just have the heart."
