Any time you are able to help out is appreciated. We also have set-up time on Friday and tear-down on Saturday, if you’d rather do that. Here is the link to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f084fafac28aaf94-ihsma4 . If you have trouble signing up, just e-mail me and let me know what spot you want to volunteer for.
