3. Organize team Bottle Drive Sunday April 5th: As part of our fundraising efforts, we would like to organize a bottle drive where our skaters can go out in teams and collect for their club. We need 1 or 2 volunteers to help organize delivery of flyers, sign ups, assign routes etc.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090C4BABAB2EAAFF2-winter

4. Wine Raffle Organizers: The Club is running a wine raffle as our primary fundraiser. All families are asked to donate one bottle of wine and will be responsible to sell 10 tickets per skater, $10 per ticket. We need a few volunteers to run this fundraiser (working as a team). Final Draw will be May 2nd.  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090C4BABAB2EAAFF2-winter

5. Music attendance:  Remember you can also earn volunteer hours by taking attendance at sessions.  Please email debbie.l.robillard@gmail.comor mariacorrales1217@yahoo.ca   if interested as they are putting together a schedule.

If you would be interested in arranging and running a used dress / equipment sale please contact me.  Would be nice to have at least one this year.
 
 
Keep an eye on this page for volunteer opportunities so you can fulfill your 12 hour commitment. Please remember that any time you do any volunteer hours please send me an email to confirm you attendance and time so I can record it ... I can't give you credit if I don't know about it!
 
You will have already seen our volunteer requirements when you registered your skater on uplifter, but I want to take a moment to remind everyone of your volunteer commitment for this season (this is also posted on our website):
A minimum of 12 volunteer hours is required per family who has a skater in the Starskate program that skates for more than 1 hour per week.  Throughout the year it will be each family's responsibility to keep track of their volunteer hours with the Volunteer Coordinator. 
Families who do not fulfill the requirements throughout the regular skating season will have a 350 $ charge added to their latest invoice on file with SFSC, which will be automatically charged to the credit card on file for that payment unless there are extenuating circumstances that have been previously approved by the SFSC Executive.
Please note that volunteer hours are not transferrable (ie, you can't do extra hours and then pass them on to other families.  The Volunteer Coordinator needs to be contacted for approval in any extenuating circumstances).  Hours can not be carried over to next year if you have done extra.
Where there are not enough volunteer opportunities in a given year to allow families to meet their 12-hour minimum requirement, the SFSC Executive will consider the ratio of overall opportunities available to time committed by each family before issuing the charge.
 
Please remember that we do not have a Casino this season.  We have already had a few members fill their commitment this year, so I am certain there will be plenty of opportunities for all.  When you have volunteered, if you could please send me an email (staceyjo71@outlook.com) so I can enter your hours.  
**you do not have to send me music attendance hours - that will be tracked by our attendance coordinators and sent my way.
 
We have awesome parent volunteers and I look forward to another year working with you - you make my job much easier!
