July 3 - 4

We're seeking people who can help with a variety of tasks on July 3rd & 4th. You can help one day or all three. Much of the planning and coordination of tasks has already been done; however, we need an "army" of volunteers to assist in executing the plan. You'll be able to choose a shift and area based on your availability and our need. You may coordinate your choice of such with friends, family, or co-workers; however, each volunteer must fill out the application.
