Our November 4 Suzuki Association of Ontario conference in Waterloo is quickly approaching! The conference committee in search of some volunteers and donations to run this event smoothly.
Volunteers: We are in need of about 20-30 volunteers for our event November 4 and some volunteers for the teacher conference November 5. Some jobs can be as little as 1-2 hours, though we are always happy to have volunteers willing to take on a little more time. We have jobs both for the day of and before hand (set up, take down, handing out lunches, volunteering in craft room, supervising the silent auction, helping with registration desk, making tickets for lunches, making and distributing craft tickets, stuffing conference packages, introducing clinicians, etc). Please let Liz Biswas know if you are willing to help us out and approximate amount of time or type of task you would be interested in. Volunteer hours will be given to responsible high school students. Our Volunteer Co-ordinators are Karen Keppel-Jones (Parent at STEW) and Caireen Brain (Parent of STEW and SSSG and adult student). They will be following up with anyone who has offered time. Thank you both for your time. Please email STEWaterloo@gmail.com if you are able to help us out.
Craft Supplies: We are looking for donations of craft supplies for the craft room at the conference. This can include scissors, glue guns and glue, stickers, paper, tissue paper, glue, rocks for decorating, toilet paper tubes, beads, fabric, yarn, ribbons, etc. (Please no paint or glitter). Financial donations are also accepted and very much welcomed. The craft room will be supervised by "Craft room Lynn" from SOSI. She always has great projects we are really looking forward to having her join us. Please email STEWaterloo@gmail.com if you have any donations available.
