Donations of time, accompanied either by special skills or by plain willingness to hang around and do whatever needs doing, will be gratefully accepted by Wolf Trap in the ressurection of its 1982 summer season. (Money still is welcome, too.)

For an old-fashioned tent-raising party, both volunteer construction workers and people willing to bring lemonade or food to keep them going are needed to assist in putting up Meadow Center, the structure that will temporarily replace the Filene Center, destroyed by fire.

For several days, somewhere between May 20 and June 15 (depending on when the portable center arrives), individuals or high- school or college groups will be welcomed to do manual labor, including carpentry, under the supervision of professional construction workers, and to help them eat and drink whatever picnic goodies other volunteers bring them.

Anyone interested in participating in this marathon work-party should call the Wolf Trap volunteer center at Dranesville Tavern, 430-4120.

The 19th-century tavern, located at 11919 Leesburg Pike, Herndon, and now owned by the Fairfax County Park Authority, is the place to call for offers of goods and services. Some jobs, such as helping run this very volunteer center, are needed right away; others, as noted, during the performance season.

MESSENGERS: The chief run is between the Dranesville Tavern and Wolf Trap, and messengers with their own cars, motorcycles or bicycles will be especially useful. Joggers may also apply, but should know that the distance is 61/2 hilly miles.

TELEPHONE OPERATORS: The glamour part of this job, such as it is, will be on June 2, when people are needed to take calls on the air for the Wolf Trap telethon on WETA (Channel 26) from 8 to 11 p.m. There will be another special need for the next few days, to make follow-up calls concerning telethon pledges. But volunteers to work telephones are in constant demand, for whatever time they can give.

TYPISTS, CLERKS AND ENVELOPE-STUFFERS: These are also constant needs.

COMPUTER PROGRAMMERS: It would be perfect if they could bring their own computers. But Wolf Trap is also hoping to have computers given or lent (see below), and then the skill alone will be very much in demand.

PRINTERS: Professional or amateur printers are needed to make labels, benefit invitations and such.

MARKETING ANALYSTS: There is a great deal of re-planning necessary in transforming the originally scheduled season into the modified one, and people who can gather box office data or do marketing surveys would be useful.

USHERS: Ushers are needed to take tickets, collect donations, and provide general assistance at galas and benefits for Wolf Trap. These include the one at Constitution Hall June 9, at the Kennedy Center on June 30, and at the Capital Centre next September. Volunteers for this type of ushering should call the Dranesville number.

ASSISTANTS FOR SPECIAL GROUPS: Wolf Trap has special workshops for the handicapped and for Head Start children, but the logistics -- of managing wheelchairs, for example -- will be harder this year, and additional help is needed. Volunteers should call Janice McKelvey at Wolf Trap, 938-3810, ext. 213.

GARDENING ENTHUSIASTS: Wolf Trap received a donation of 17,000 azaleas, and needs garden clubs or groups willing to sell them in bulk to benefit the center. FUND-RAISERS: Anyone interested in putting on an original benefit for Wolf Trap should register it through the volunteer center, which will provide advice and information (but not visiting stars).

ALL-PURPOSE WORKERS: People who willing to "stand around and do whatever they're told" will be especially appreciated.

DONORS: Wolf Trap has a long wish-list of items, from concrete to paper clips, needed to renovate the grounds, replace burnt backstage furnishings and conveniences, and stock the volunteer office. Instead of having a yard sale this summer, you mightbring to Wolf Trap, as a present or on loan, any of the following: Two thousand tons of crushed stone, clothes hangers, typewriters, folding tables, curtains for trailer dressing rooms, a 20- by 40-foot carpet to be used onstage to muffle the sound of pop groups, desks, copier machines, minicomputers, bulletin boards, a 50- by 100-foot tent to be used as a chorus dressing room, a large amount of concrete, a small amount of asphalt, Rolodexes, file folders, file cabinets; chairs, couches and tables for dressing rooms ("Lena Horne will sit on them," promises Wolf Trap coordinator Laura Miller); small calculators, staplers with staples in them, telephone-answering machines, desk and table lamps, refrigerators and freezers, ice-makers, waste baskets, paper and plastic plates and eating utensils, insulated pitchers for cold water or hot coffee, a coffee percolator large enough to serve a symphony orchestra; office partitions, a washtub for costumes, a washer and dryer; pens, pencils and notepads, irons and ironing boards, two to three dozen bath towels, preferably in the form of a towel service that will keep them clean; adding machines -- and don't forget the paper clips. bring to Wolf Trap, as a present or on loan, any of the following: Two thousand tons of crushed stone, clothes hangers, typewriters, folding tables, curtains for trailer dressing rooms, a 20- by 40-foot carpet to be used onstage to muffle the sound of pop groups, desks, copier machines, minicomputers, bulletin boards, a 50- by 100-foot tent to be used as a chorus dressing room, a large amount of concrete, a small amount of asphalt, Rolodexes, file folders, file cabinets; chairs, couches and tables for dressing rooms ("Lena Horne will sit on them," promises Wolf Trap coordinator Laura Miller); small calculators, staplers with staples in them, telephone-answering machines, desk and table lamps, refrigerators and freezers, ice-makers, waste baskets, paper and plastic plates and eating utensils, insulated pitchers for cold water or hot coffee, a coffee percolator large enough to serve a symphony orchestra; office partitions, a washtub for costumes, a washer and dryer; pens, pencils and notepads, irons and ironing boards, two to three dozen bath towels, preferably in the form of a towel service that will keep them clean; adding machines -- and don't forget the paper clips.
