“Band Camp Volunteer Alumni”
from Ruth Collins, Volunteer Coordinator:
As you likely know Christ Church Band Camp is happening this year July 2 to July 13. This is an initial request for volunteers to assist as you are able/available. While I don’t have an official schedule as yet, the needs will be similar to previous years i.e. volunteers to prepare a.m. and p.m. snacks, assist with programs such as crafts, cooking, junior music program, supervise movie time, board games and assist with concert on July 12th.
Please let me know if you may be able to assist this year, as I am leaving on vacation on June 18 until July 7th so would like to have the volunteers fairly organized before I leave. (I’d rather not have Victoria/Mark/Jason calling me back from Cape Breton)
