·         We’re a little more than 2 weeks away from Haunted Hallway! Haunted Hallway organizers are looking for 2 people to act as leaders for each of the 5 stations at Haunted Hallway. These are a Haunted Maze, a Haunted House, Candy Hallway, Games/Arts & Crafts & Face Painting. This involves helping with set up the night before the event and making sure everything runs smoothly at your station the night of (eg. if you’re running the candy hallway, make sure all the volunteers have enough candy to give out). Becoming one of the station leaders is a good idea if you think you may want to be involved in leadership next year (awesome!). If you are interested in becoming a leader, please sign up on the following spreadsheet:

·         If leadership is not your thing, please sign up to volunteer at one of the 5 stations the night of the event. There are two time slots for each station and please start by signing up for only one to give everyone a chance! Keep in mind there may be some shuffling at the event if people are needed elsewhere. Please sign up using this spreadsheet:
