Dear friends of CHHS instrumental music!

There is much at stake locally this Election Day…including HOW MUCH MONEY CAN WE RAISE FOR HEIGHTS IMD!!

We are at the Heights Main Library on Lee once again this Election Day (11.7.17) and we need your help. Please use this sign up to volunteer for a shift, commit to bringing a baked good, or both!

If you are bringing a baked good – please tell us what you’re bringing in the comments section. This year we are in the afternoon slot, 1pm to 7:30pm. So if you have a savory baked good recipe, bring it on! We may get some interest from the after work crowd.

Of course, many hands make quick work. So please sign up for a shift on Election Day.

Thanks in advance for all you do to help keep the music playing at Heights IMD!

To volunteer or bring a baked good, follow this link:
