Please take a quick moment to click and see what spots we need to fill for the event to run without a hitch!

We need set up, clean up and servers plus greeters and helpers with the kids community art project!

It’s going to be fun, so please plan ahead and either drive separately from family or make sure you allow some time to help our fearless leader Kerri Graver at this rewarding event for our school.
