2. Instead of paying $40, you will be responsible for bringing items to the concession stand each meet. The concession committee will send a sign up genius to those who do not wish to pay the $40.
3. Bringing food or paying the One and Done does not fulfill the volunteer commitment. All parents will need to volunteer at the meets. If not, the meet does not run smoothly.
4. Looking for volunteers for the concession committee. Need parents to help bake or work the concessions stand. Please email Lisa Evans: limiley@gmail.com if interested.
