Volunteer/Service Opportunities Abound

September 12, 2013

Holy Cross Parish Festival will be held this Saturday, Sept. 14 from 2 to 5 p.m., and there are ways for everyone to pitch in and help. Here are some ideas for you:

  • Contact PTO President Marie Jareczek if you’re a 7th or 8th grade student willing to help out in the PTO bingo tent for an hour between 2 and 4 p.m. Not only will it be a big help to the PTO, you will also earn service hours for your time. Duties will include handing out and picking up bingo cards.
  • Fathers Club can always use an extra pair of hands with set-up and clean-up. They’ll be setting up the event on Friday night, and cleaning up after the festival. Contact a Fathers Club officer (Jon Chitwood, Joe Jareczek, John Schultz or Jorge Palazuelos) if you have any questions or to volunteer.
  • Maura Dodson is looking for 7th and 8th-grade student volunteers to work in the children’s craft tent during the parish festival.  This is another opportunity to have fun volunteering while scoring some service hours! Email Mrs. Dodson with the time slot that you’d prefer.
  • The 2nd Annual Holy Cross Fun Run is set to begin at 8 a.m. Saturday. The registration fee (of $10 adult/$7 high school students/$5 students K-8/free for the toddler-preschool Grass Dash) will support the Holy Cross Guardian Angel Fund. Students participating in the Fun Run/Walk can complete their 26th mile of our FIT Club and earn a medal.  Mrs. Obershaw has communicated this portion of the event to all students in PE class.  Ribbons will be given to all Grass Dash participants. Walk or run for a great cause!
  • Plan on attending 5 p.m. mass on Saturday, then stay for a fun concert of hits from the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.  Plenty of grill food and beverages will be provided by the Knights of Columbus.  Bring your lawn chairs and blankets.

Pick a way to help!  Then see you at the festival!!
