It's that time of year again! The 4th of July celebration is fast approaching and the success of this event is only possible with the valuable input of volunteers!
So…once again, it is hoped that people will be willing to assist with either setting up (day before), helping to man a stall/or event (day of), or lending a hand to tear everything down (day after). Any time that you can ‘donate’ will be appreciated!
NOTE: This year’s celebration will be on Saturday 2ndof July.
A sign-up sheet will be placed in the Volcano Club notice-board for anyone interested, or you can call Marie-Anne Dennis on 2616/2269 for further information.
NOTE: There will be a ‘food & booze’ party for all the helpers – on Sunday 3rd July, at 1800 hours.
