May 11 from 4-8pm at the Deer Path Branch
Volunteers are needed to assist with the Hunterdon County YMCA Child Learning Center’s Preschool Prom on May 11, at the Deer Path branch. Much like a traditional “prom” the preschool prom is themed (this year our theme is Mom since Mother’s Day is so close to our event date), and encourages children and families to dress up and be fancy for an evening of fun, food, music and dancing! Needs include setup/break down of the event, as well as assisting with activities during prom such as; food table, children’s activities, and photo booth.
Please check back for more Special Event Opportunities.
