Warm welcome to all the new (and much needed) volunteers joining us for the Fall 2012 Season.
And (of course) continued gratitude to all you old hands at the helm who ought not to be taken for granted.

We always need some help at the Sunapee Community CoffeeHouse. Get involved. This isn't a spectator sport! Especially if you're a musician who's playing at the SCC. We ask that you give back. Help keep live music live in Sunapee!
We need help...Will you help? Pick one!

  • Be a part of putting up posters occasionally,
  • Emceeing/Hosting one night per year! (more available if you'd like)
  • Run an Open Mic
  • Posting Events on NPR, YellowHouse Media and WhoFish.org webcalendars
  • Cutting and pasting pics/text from musician's website, and sending out press releases on the musicians, using our Press Release mailing list.
  • Help us build a Facebook Page.
  • Sort our images and post for an online album on our website, Facebook or Flickr

Let us know if you'd like to help. The community will thank you
And you'll get much more back than you put into it !
