 Needed immediately!

We desperately need volunteers for the Hickory Crawdads concession stand this Friday.  Anyone over age 18 can volunteer in the concession stand.  The time spent there earns money for your PSO account (athletics or owed money) and also takes care of volunteer hours.   Call the Firebird Office for more information.  828-485-2980. 
There will NOT BE A FALL FUNDRAISER for sports that can earn as much as the Crawdads Concessions.  If you work now and earn the pay-to-play money, then you will already have it for the fall.  There will be smaller fundraisers, but the Crawdads Concessions can knock out the pay-to-play amount quickly.
Thanks, H. Benfield
