The Concession Stand Committee is getting ready for the Softball/Baseball season! We are looking for volunteers to work in the concession stand during Trinity home games. This will require 2 couples (or 4 people). We ask that 1-2 volunteers be there at 4:30 so we can open by 4:45. The games are typically done by 8:00. A committee member will be available at each game to help get things set up, help out between games, and answer any questions you may have. The committee will also make sure that we have burgers, hotdogs, and buns stocked. This is different from last year and hopefully this will make it easier on our volunteers! We do ask that you grill the meat. You can sign up on the Google doc on Trinity’s website or contact Mary Vis at 470-3693 with which game you would like. To use the website, click on “Resources”, then “Documents”, at the bottom of that page under Parent’s Circle is “Concession Stand Sign Up”. We thank you all again for your generous donation of time in support of TCHS!
