NDA CC Parent Group 2018 Key Volunteer Roles to be filled

Welcome to our NDA Cross Country family. We are blessed to have so many dedicated parents who help with our large team. Our Parent Group motto is “Many Hands Make Light Work.”
We have found that not only are we helping the CC team, but we are forming a wonderful family atmosphere at NDA.

Below is a summary of volunteer roles to be filled in 2018. If you are willing to fill one of these roles, please indicate such within this Sign-up Genius. Should any questions arise, please contact the Parent Volunteer Coordinator (see contact information, below). Thank you.

When the season approaches, there is something for everyone. Some roles take just a few minutes a few times a season, and other roles allow you to get very involved in the functioning of the team. In August, we will encourage all parents to visit our volunteer opportunities and choose how to help. For now, we would like to fill some key roles.

Thank you so much! Questions? Contact: Pam Gerstner – Parent Volunteer Coordinator email: ndaccparentvolunteering@gmail.com cell: 920-655-4081
