  • Monday Set Up Crew - the rental equipment will be here by 10am. Lunch will be provided.
  • Friday Volunteer Parking
    • if your shift to volunteer is before 9:00 AM on Friday, please meet at the Mennonite church and there will be shuttles to bring you to church.  The shuttles will be available then when you need to get back to your vehicle.  If that is a hardship for anyone, please come to church to park.  If possible, please carpool on Friday to limit the number of cars.
    • For those whose shift begins after 9:00 AM, we are planning to have you park at the church, however, if the church lot is full, we will send out an email instructing you where to park – most likely at the Mennonite church and the shuttles will be available.
