Alumni BBQ Volunteers

The Alumni BBQ would not be possible without our alumni volunteers. We need your help cooking food and serving food and drinks.  Shifts are only a few hours, so you’ll still have time to enjoy the Alumni BBQ with your friends and family. Alumni Volunteers receive free admission to the Alumni BBQ and a special “thank you” gift from the Alumni Association.
