Graduation Volunteer Update!

Below are details for tomorrow evening. This is a reminder for those who signed up to volunteer! Very important!
Mrs. Fouts (person in charge) can be reached at (918) 766-5536 if anyone has questions tomorrow.
When you arrive and head up the escalators, you should already find boxes of programs at each set of doors on either side of the arena.
Reminder: This year, we need our Key Club volunteers to get to the Mabee Center a little earlier than normal.
Please enter the Mabee Center through the west entrance (facing Walmart) with their IDs by 5:15pm.
IDs will be checked by security (who should also have a list of volunteer names).
The names of volunteers who signed up first are: Thank Khai, Cing Kim, Cing Guite, Lian Nuam, Maya Reeves, and Cing Niang. They have your name on a list that you are helping out and are counting on you!
Please divide the number of volunteers so that there are students passing out programs at each entrance along the top level. Some can be stations near the escalators, and some can be stations on the opposite side. Guests should be allowed to enter starting around 5:30pm.
Once everyone has taken their seats and it looks like no more programs need to be passed out, you are free to leave (around 7pm).
Contact specialprojects@jenkskeyclub.org or (918) 766-5536 if you have any questions.

Last Flycatcher Trail Planting Day!

We are having what will probably be our last Flycatcher Trail event of the semester this Sunday (4/28) from 1-4 in the afternoon. However, you may come and go whenever you can help throughout this time.

We will have many new flowers to plant at the trail on this day, and will finish putting new gravel over the last bit of the picnic area!

Thank you all for the large turnout at each of the Flycatcher Trail events this year! The trail is looking great thanks to you all, and we have gotten so much done with your help.
