A big thank you to all our volunteers who have helped our new kindergarteners learn the routines over the last two weeks - your support is really appreciated.

Thank you also to everyone who joined us on Monday at our First HSA meeting of the year. It was great to see so many new faces.

4)(Campbell's) Label for Education program is ending. We will still collect all labels for the full calendar year. The Company is not printing them on products anymore so there should not be many incoming. But we would love to have all that are sitting in drawers, pantries or on items.

Volunteers are needed for a quick set up at 5:45, to work the concession stand from 6:30-7 (you won't miss the movie) and a few hands to help break things down at the end of the night. Don't forget to dress accordingly and bring a blanket/chair and flashlight. All children must be accompanied and supervised by an adult at all times...or we may need to call in Officer Hopps! Please send your registration forms in by Tuesday, Sept. 20th. $5/person, $20/family of 4 or more.
