Parking: 4 hour complimentary parking is available at Shoreline Village. Because we only have 40 Parking Vouchers, we ask volunteers that come in groups to car pool as much as possible.

Volunteer Check-In: there will be a clearly marked Volunteer Check In and will receive a t-shirt. They will receive their assignments at the Volunteer Check-In station and can then grab a cup of Einstein’s coffee or juice and a bagel and report to their volunteer station.

Volunteer Training: We are scheduling two (2) Volunteer Trainings at Shoreline Village, one on Tuesday, April 25, 2017 and Wednesday, April 26, 2017, 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. We meet in front of the Funnel House right off of the parking lot to tour the layout of the event and assign leadership positions to those who attend the Training. If everyone is open to it we share a pizza at Stefano’s Pizza and Pasta at Shoreline Village.
