VOLUNTEERS NEEDED - FAMILY FUN DAY - HOMECOMING
Students, I hope you are planning to come to the Family Fun Day (Saturday, September 20) during our Homecoming weekend. While your brothers and sisters or children or any children you may bring along are playing, how would you like to give some service by working a 1 1/2 or 2 hour shift in various areas?
It is a fun day and all volunteers get to wear a nifty green vest so they can be identified! Shifts are available anytime from 11am to 4pm. See Sister Sally by Wednesday, September 17, to choose your area and time or you can e-mail her at sally.bohnett@mercycollege.edu.
