VOLUNTEERS – Needed BEFORE, DURING and AFTER the event:
Please join us as we host this fun event for our Graduates!!!  We will need over 60 volunteers for the entire event, and there are a variety of ways to help – from decorating the venue, ordering/securing food, working the games, handing out prizes, registering graduates as they enter, set-up, clean up, etc.  The parents have just as much fun as the kids do!!!  We especially need underclass parents to help with this event so that the parents of the Seniors can enjoy the Graduation festivities with their graduate and friends and family.  Keep in mind that you do not have to work the entire night – we have various shifts to pick from!
