Assumption is hosting the Iowa High School Music Association 3A Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday, and we really need volunteers! Your time is eligible for service hours, and many of the jobs are as simple as sitting at a table following a schedule, or serving concessions, or taking admission money. 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.
