First Night St. Johnsbury still has openings for volunteers. Two Orientation Sessions are scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday. Both sessions are from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Universalist Unitarian Church, 47 Cherry St., across from the Catamount Arts Center. The two-hour time block is for volunteer's convenience; go at any time during the sessions.

Volunteers check buttons and will only need to work a minimum of two hours on New Year's Eve. In exchange, all volunteers receive a flashing First Night 2012 button that is good for all events and has a retail value of $30. The buttons will be available at the orientation sessions.

If you can't make the sessions, you still may volunteer by contacting Sharon Meigs, volunteer coordinator for First Night St. Johnsbury 2012 at 802-748-5698 or e-mail at
