Gentles are needed to set up, help clean up, and to provide general help (i.e., signing in children, relief staff, etc.). We can never have too many people helping. We ask that volunteers be at The Great Hall at 9 am for set up, and clean up should be done by 2 pm. Volunteers who will be registering children, please come to the Great Hall around 8:30 for training! Please consider giving your time to ensure the children have a magnificent time!
