Cabin Fever Carnival hosted by Michigan Tech Preschool – Looking for Volunteers

The event will take place at the MUB Ballroom on Saturday, February 23.  We need volunteers mainly to supervise the games, help with the snack bar/bake sale, sell carnival game tickets, distribute prizes, etc. Last year’s event was very successful and we are excited about this year’s event.  A large part of our success was a great group of volunteers last year and we hope the campus community can help the Preschool again this year.

If your organization can participate, please contact Rhys Edwards at by February18th with a list of names and/or a number of volunteers your organization can commit to one or more shifts.  Michigan Tech Preschool is a non-profit parent cooperative preschool that has been serving the local community and its children for over 50 years.  We hope you will choose to work with us to continue our tradition of affordable early childhood education.
