Seeking Volunteers
Thursday-Saturday, May 28-30
Jackson is hosting the state soccer championships on May 28th, 29th, and 30th. The event organizers are still looking for MANY people to help out. No soccer knowledge is required for the volunteer positions. Jackson has done a great job hosting this tournament because of the great support of our community and people who were willing to give up a little bit of time to help out with the event. A variety of volunteer opportunities are available, in short time increments (8:30-10:45, 10:45-1:15, 1:15-3:45, 3:45-6:15). Any help you might be able to offer would be GREATLY appreciated! If you are able to help, please contact Mike Hansen, Jackson Hole High School Activities Director, at 307-732-3705. Thanks!
