Concessions: We need 5 people from 4:40 – 9 p.m. on Thursday, December 5 in the slightly heated concessions area.

Night at the park: Our night to work at the park will be Thursday, December 26 from 4:40 to 9 p.m. We need 8 people ages 16 or older. (More are needed if we split shifts).

Clean Up: While it may be a bit chilly, we need at least 3 volunteers (ages 12 and older) to help with taking down the lights and displays on January 1, 4 or 5, plus 1 volunteer to remove the decorations from the ILS Christmas tree in the morning on January 1.

Ready to volunteer? Be sure to contact Sarah Kruse as soon as possible. When arriving at the park, sign in and list Immanuel Lutheran School Mankato as your organization so we get fundraising credit for your volunteer time.
