We had a number of parents volunteer through the "Pick your Pleasure" form that was distributed with the Band Camp packet. Thanks! Another way to volunteer is to indicate which events and/or support roles you might be interested in via this handy on-line form. A list of the myriad tasks and events that people typically help out with is available here.
