Help Needed for Relay for Life

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

We are going to be looking for volunteers this weekend at Relay for Life. We will be working in the Field House. I believe we have been given permission to start setting up for it on Friday evening, but I will have to check on that. We will definitely need volunteers for the day of the event, throughout the event, if we need tables moved, people working at different stations, helping with set up and tear down, and possibly in the concession stand. This is awesome work for people who need last minute service hours. If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks,
Michael
