Note: Our online registration through Eventbrite will ask you about the quantity of "tickets" you want, but, for our purpose, each "ticket" is equal to one volunteer slot. We ask that each individual registers themselves or one person registers each person. This is important so that we can ensure that all slots are filled, name tags printed and registration material ready, so that each volunteer is not waiting at registration. We ask that you please enter your cell phone or email address so that if there is a last minute change we can send out mass text or email communications to all registered. Please assist us with supporting this new registration process.
