Volunteers are needed to be in the Haunted House, work the games, assist with Fear Factor, and make sure that families have a spooky good time! For more information or to sign up to volunteer, contact Dionne Horne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Set-up: October 4 - 17, 2014
Tear-down: November 3 - 13, 2014
The Egyptian Theatre is looking for volunteers to help with the set-up and tear-down of their annual Amenti Haunted House! Each year, over 3,000 guests attend this scary fun event. An event this big and terrifying calls for many helping hands (and other limbs) and often includes labor intensive work. There are also opportunities to be involved in the actual attraction! If you and your friends, athletic team, sorority/fraternity, or student organization want to take part in this volunteer opportunity, contact Alex Nerad at email@example.com.

CROP Hunger Walks are community-wide, sponsored by Church World Service, and organized by religious groups, businesses, schools, and others to raise funds to end hunger in the United States and around the world. 25% of the funds raised during the walk stay local and go to DeKalb/Sycamore community organizations. There will be a bus available from NIU to the Federated Church in Sycamore.
A mandatory Recruiter Rally will take place at the church on Tuesday, September 9 at 7:00pm.
Contact Jean Evans for more information.
Thursday, May 1st - October 31st
