Volunteers Needed – Registration & Crossing Guards

Volunteers are needed during registration to help keep the process moving smoothly and quickly.

We also need some crossing guards during the event to help keep kids safe crossing the busy streets. If your home is not in the designated area, but you would like to distribute candy, please consider volunteering as a crossing guard at an intersection. Get into the spirit and wear a costume if you like! Adults and teens can help… this is a fun service project for scout troops, church groups, etc.
