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 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!
