Concession Stand Volunteers
Concession stand volunteers are still needed. If you could please consider signing up or having your kiddos over 14 help with food running. Every hour worked equally goes towards the sport of your choice, or you can opt to have your hour's work go towards the Huron Athletic Booster Club. I have been working hours that are not during Football so I can enjoy the games. Think about helping at another sport or level of sport so you can enjoy your athlete's game. All profits from the concession stand will be put in the Concession Bank account and at the end of each sport season(Fall, Winter & Spring) those profits will be evenly shared per sports hours. We want to make sure there are concessions for all games. Here's the link to sign up to help. Contact Kim Liepold for questions - RiverRatConcessions@gmail.com
