TEEN VOLUNTEERS FOR PURIM CARNIVALS

Sunday, March 12

We need our older youth to serve their community by helping with both carnivals. 

We'll need lots of help setting up the week before, and Saturday night before the carnival. For the first carnival, we need volunteers in 9th-12th grade to run booths, and 7th-8th graders to serve as booth assistants (this is a change from last year, but this year we’re having more games 5th-7th graders will themselves enjoy). You can sign up for a shift to enjoy part of the carnival yourself, or for the whole time if that’s your preference.

For the second carnival, we need teens in 7th-12th to sing and dance with our guests, act out the play, run the booths, and guide our guests in enjoying the carnival games.

It’s first come, first serve, so sign up ASAP.
