As the host location, we will need to provide volunteers to assist the State League in staffing the event.

Volunteers are needed to help with registration, staffing the sales and publications room, and hosting the hospital- ity room. We will also need members to serve as time keepers, floor pages, ushers and door keepers during the Plenary Sessions on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. This is a great opportunity to meet leaguers from across the state and learn more about how the league functions.

Training will be available by state league people to help you. Please let me know if you can help. Joan Johnson 488-4339 jaj62@twcny.rr.com
