Sonshine provides different experience to volunteers


WILLMAR - Linda and Brian Friedlein, of Willmar, have been coordinating Sonshine Music Festival's volunteers for 24 years.

Their job consists of coordinating the 200 to 400 volunteers who stand at the gates, take tickets, assist the vendors in the Willmar Civic Center and direct traffic. Each volunteer works four three-hour shifts over the course of the four days of the festival.
