VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Please keep in mind all of these volunteer opportunities can be done in 1 hour increments.  You don’t have to volunteer for the entire event.  Once you sign up to volunteer the chair will send out a separate sign up genius or email with details and time slots for you to choose.  We hope to see your name on the list.
