Event Set up and clean up- October 21st - 25th :
We need a small army of volunteers to help us create the apocalypse (and then clean up after it!). This task does involve some manual lifting and carrying, but most items are bigger than they are heavy and can easily be managed by a couple of people. Our crew leaders will instruct volunteers on how and where props should go. Volunteers are needed for the following shifts:
Wednesday October 21st 9am- 3pm
Thursday October 22nd 10am -9pm
Friday October 23 th, 7am-2pm, 2pm-6pm, 6pm-9pm
Saturday October 24 th, 9am-6pm (or any part of that time)
