Let's throw them the biggest party of their high school life!

Last year our planning team was short a few members, which meant some of us wearing extra hats. We would love to throw the 2023 party with a FULL team. We can teach you what you need to know and provide job descriptions. A couple hours a month is all you need. ´┐╝Please comment below or message if you are interested or have questions. Three more of our team members will retire after 2023, so we also need people to co-chair and fill these important roles for 2024.
