Grandparents Day – Volunteers Needed – Wednesday, October 25th
A message from our coordinator, Eli Anderson: “CCS will be hosting grandparents and special friends during chapel time. Our invited guests will get an inside look into what goes on at our school. With the day fast approaching, we are in need of some volunteers to help host/serve our family and friends. The morning consists of setting out treats and beverages, keeping water filled, and then help with clean up afterwards. The more people we have will only make for lighter work. I am looking for help between the hours of 7:45 until noon. We were not at the school this late last year; we were done before 11. Any time you can give will be helpful, if you can only do two hours, that’s fine. Please let me know. These hours do go towards your volunteer hours for the school. If you have any questions or are able to help, please contact me. Thank you!” You can reach Eli Anderson at 262-442-6318 (text messages welcome) or eaanderson924@gmail.com
