HSIA Special Notice – Lead Volunteer Needed for September Happy Hour!

Hillsmere Residents,

The Moxie Blues Band will be playing at the Hillsmere Beach on Saturday September 9th from 5-8pm. All Hillsmere residents and their guests are welcome.

For this to be successful we need a volunteer coordinator and volunteers the evening of the event. The coordinator will be responsible for finding other volunteers, purchasing supplies, greeting the band at 3:30 to help with setup, and monitoring clean up when the event is over.

If we do not have a lead volunteer coordinator come forward, the band will still perform, but we will not be able to grill food, it would then be a bring your own picnic/drink event.

Please contact the Events Chair by Monday August 14th through the HSIA phone line at 410-263-4456.
