New2You - Just a few more openings!

Please check to see if you are available to volunteer for our team this Friday there are two more openings and a few more on other dates.  Thank you to those that have signed up already!

New2You Sign-ups!

We have been asked to staff New2You for the Fridays in December.  The GRCHS Boy's Swim/Dive Team will get a percentage of the sales for the three hours each Friday IF we cover all 5 nights.  This is a great opportunity that we don't want to miss out on as we can easily earn $1,000 plus for each month that we volunteer.  Unfortunately part of this shift is during our practice times :(.  I know it is last minute but can you all check your schedules and sign up for at least one Friday slot?  We need FOUR volunteers per Friday and the shift is 4:00pm-7:00pm.  At least TWO of the volunteers must be male (minimum age 17).  Thank you for your willingness to help out and your commitment to helping raise funds for our team.  GO EAGLES!
