Art Volunteers Needed

We are looking for several volunteers to help put together some student art projects for a silent auction.  No major art skills are needed, just a willingness to help and a little creativity and / or organizational skills.  Also, volunteering is always more fun with a friend!  So consider finding a friend to help out – half the work, double the fun! Please reach out to Sarah Grace for more information.
