Volunteer Opportunities 
Consider Being a Part of the Spring Celebration Team!

Dear HPS,

Will your New Year’s Resolution include something along the lines of “…get involved” or “…give back” or “...meet more HPS families”? 

Involvement in HPS’s largest fundraiser - the Spring Celebration - may be the perfect place to start! 

Plan to meet with other potential volunteers to learn more  on Tuesday, January 16  at Hyde Perk Coffee & Wine Bar,  located at 3664 Edwards Rd. 

Keep in mind that absolutely no prior experience is necessary; there are varied roles, suiting anyone’s interests/ time constraints. Some include seeking donations from local businesses, creating raffle baskets, helping on the day of the event, and many other job options! We always have a fun group of volunteers! 

Also, save the date for the sixth-annual Spring Celebration  on Thursday, April 19.  More details coming soon! 

If you have any questions, let me know! My email is beth1abell@aol.com .

Thank you for considering to be a part of the Spring Celebration team! We hope to see you January 16!
