DNHS Alumni Volunteers Needed
Alumni volunteers are needed to help at DNHS registration Thursday August 4 and Friday August 5, 2016. Times both days are 9-11:30 am or 12:30-3 pm. Even one hour would be OK. No experience necessary – just a friendly face to welcome families to Del Norte and hand out water bottles and granola bars. Registration takes place on the patio between the main building and the Performing Arts Center. Spanish speaking volunteers are needed Aug. 4 – 5 between 9am-3 pm to help the registrar in the Del Norte office. For more information or to volunteer, contact Janet Saiers (class of 1966) at 505-299-5019 or email@example.com.
