In addition, if dads/moms would like to join the festivities, you can volunteer! This is an INTERACTIVE volunteer opportunity… parents are asked to lead a variety of games/activities and get the kiddos excited about participating. Please email Stacielacina@hotmail.com. (A sign up genius will then be sent to those who have expressed interest in volunteering so that you will be able to specifically choose the task/game etc… you would like to help with.)
