Away Game Volunteers Needed
Here we go! Our first away game this Friday against the LaPorte Bulldogs at the Bulldog Stadium in La Porte. Kickoff is at 7:00pm.
We need chaperones to help with game meals at the HS, chaperones to ride the buses, chaperones to help fill water jugs in the stands, chaperones to help with the halftime action team (HAT), chaperones to help with wash clothes after half time and there are other areas that will arise. Look for my next email and Jotform to sign up. If you ever suspect that you missed my email or displaced it, then the current Jotform is always posted on the Home page of the website each Sunday night at: clhsband.org. Many hands lighten the load!
As always, Thank You Chaperones. You make the difference in our children’s lives!
