We are in need of volunteers, water, coolers and ice. If you would like to help with the games, we would need you to arrive at 1:00 to set up at the park. Please let me know if you are interested! We have no limit of the amount of volunteers that can help at this event. Just make sure that you are cleared to volunteer.
