Remember, many hands make light work. Please read the details at the top of the sign up. There is a link there for those that need a food handlers card. We are going to try to keep 50/50 band/football volunteers on each side for varsity games so we may try to build a cohesive group.  Remember our split with football  is by a percentage of volunteers that show up.
