May Day Volunteering

May Day is our biggest fund raising event of the year and we need lots of volunteers to pull it off. Below is a list of all opportunities to volunteer. Please contact our volunteer coordinator Meg Halvorsen at email. She will direct your request to the appropriate person.

We will try to accommodate volunteers with their requested position, but we may ask you to perform another duty as needed.
