Class of 2017 Parent Volunteers Needed:

MGM will be renting the trucks that, so MGM will need (2) parents that can drive the trucks to storage and return them after.  

Please contact Nancy Ward or Tammie Bryant and let them know that you are available to help that morning, they really need your help even if it is for an hour.
