Winter at West Position Needed:
Fundraising: The money raised helps to cover the overhead for Winter at West. This volunteer position can be done from home. It involves reaching out to local businesses to request donations, coordinating their donations and including their information in the program. It would be helpful if you could commit to do this position for 3 years but is not a requirement.
Volunteer Opportunities!!  We NEED you!!

Please take a look at the volunteer needs for the next few months at the choir signup link and for quick reference, the list below. The actual time required for most of these events is so small, and it's true that "many hands make light work." Volunteering at the concerts is especially easy. If you are attending anyway, please consider coming a little early to feed the kids, hand out programs or sell concessions. You are still able to fully enjoy the concerts. 

Upcoming events where volunteers are needed
  • Tuesday, February 26 (time TBA): OSU Choir Festival (CT only), chaperones needed
  • Tuesday, March 5 (7 pm at West): Intermediate Choral Festival (Cantare & MIB), check-in & ushers needed
  • Wednesday, March 6 (time TBA at West): Choral concert with visiting Concordia College. Food servers, Ticket sales & Ushers needed
  • Wednesday, March 13 (7 pm at West): March Choir Concert (all choirs), pizza servers, concessions & ushers needed
Also, please "like" the choir page on Facebook - West Salem High School Choir

Thank you for making time to help make our choir program a success!
