If you have a youth aged 14-17 that would like to serve, they will be allowed to Greet, Hydrate or Bus tables. You must verify with Connie first if they want to serve. We generally need 8-10 volunteers. There is a list serve that goes out every month. The first ones to reply will be the ones that get first dibs!
