“Tis the Season for…… Football again”

11 Dec

Hi Everyone!

AND, ‘Tis the Season for giving…….giving of your time! Did you know……
Volunteering helps counteract the effects of stress, anger, and anxiety. The social contact aspect of helping and working with others can have a profound effect on your overall psychological well-being. Nothing relieves stress better than a meaningful connection to another person.
Expands your connections. The relationships you can create while volunteering are endless. …
Makes you feel good. …
Contributes to a longer life. …
Gives purpose. …
Combats stress. …
Gives a good example to your child. …
Teaches new skills for you and your student.
So, how can you even think of staying away?? Come volunteer with us!

This week we have a need for Wednesday concession in the gym for Girls’ Basketball. WE ONLY NEED ONE PERSON!! Is it YOU??  And 1 person for Soccer on Friday. Please email Lynette at gchs2018youngcoffey@gmail.com and sign up here: http://www.gchsharkband.com/volunteer

Don’t forget, tonight’s the night for the Trumpet fundraiser at Burntwood Tavern! I’ve attached the paper you need to print and bring to eat when you go for lunch and/or dinner. Hope to see you there!

Now, for the MAIN EVENT!!
The All American Football Tournament is coming next week from the 16th till the 20th. It’s a DOOZY! We need to have both home and away concession going and grills running from 3-11p each day from the 17th-20th!!!
These games are 2 things: 1st-paying games (you can make money if you work it) and 2nd-training games (you learn what you’re doing and qualify to work and make money at the winter and spring games that we run concession for). This is your last chance to learn the ropes folks! And it is so fun and goes so fast. PLEASE come out and help us.

As a matter of fact, get on the horn and call a friend! BOTH of you come out and work! That assures you’ll have fun! WE NEED YOU! Please go to the volunteer page and sign up for a couple of time slots!
WE STILL NEED 111 PEOPLE! That’s not a typo. Seriously!
One Hundred and Eleven people/bodies in spots to work concession. You guys are wonderful! We know we can count on you to fill those spots! http://www.gchsharkband.com/volunteer/
