Steeler Training  NEW TRAINING!!

Good Afternoon!  As most of you are aware, working at Heinz Field for Steeler Games and Concerts is our biggest individual fundraiser.  Please sign up for training Wednesday May 13th at Thomas Jefferson High School Cafeteria from 6-9pm.  Training last year did not last that long.  I believe I was done with training by 7:30 pm and I had to do both training sessions. Please reply to Cynthia Randolph  let her now if you can attend this training on Wednesday, May 13th. We have several opportunities to work concerts this summer.  The first concert is Saturday, May 30th and Aramark is paying $100 for each volunteer!!!!  So if you are interested in working this first concert, please  sign up. Please pass this on to others.

Here are the upcoming trainings, please make sure  anyone you know who wants to volunteer hears about these trainings. Pass information to the middle school families as well. Everyone must have these trainings to work the games. See the Steeler page under fundraisers.
