(Shenandoah) -- A little more than a week remains before RAGBRAI 44 hits Shenandoah. And, city officials say help is still needed in a few key areas.

Jim Davey and Shelly Warner are co-chairs of Shenandoah's RAGBRAI Executive Committee. Warner tells KMA News there is still a big need for homes and yards for visitors coming into the community next Sunday.

"We are about 50 houses or yards short," said Warner. "I have to say that every other call at the chamber is from someone who doesn't have a place to stay yet. So, call the chamber, or email us, and we'll pass the word along to the housing committee."

And, Warner says volunteers are needed to staff various positions. One of the biggest needs is for volunteers to welcome the riders upon entering downtown Shenandoah.

"We do need a lot of volunteers right when they cross the arch into town," she said, "which is right about in line with where Wallin Plumbing and Heating is on Sheridan Avenue, where we're going to set it up. We have 6,000 zinnia seed packets that were given to us by Earl May with our logo on it as a memento to give to the riders. And, we need help in passing those out."
