May Day brings unique volunteer opportunities for all ages.

Madison elementary school students have submitted designs for the volunteer t-shirts. One childs design is chosen every year. Senior citizens deliver water to thirsty volunteers.

Sponsors throughout town donate money to help fund the t-shirts and the hanging flower baskets that grace the lampposts downtown.

If you would like to support the efforts, donation checks can be made payable to Madison Main Street Foundation and mailed to the Downtown Development Commission ~ May Day, Hartley Dodge Memorial, 50 Kings Road, Madison, NJ 07940.

If you would like to volunteer, please contact the DDC at or call 201-400-2349.
