Volunteering to Help
Every year we have activity tables that alumni are in charge of for shifts. We will need members to help volunteer the day of with a number of items, including the calligraphy station, origami station, karuta station, onigiri station and more. We are also open to ideas of a station you may be able to host.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in volunteering.
