Goodbye Maryvale Carnival Chair and Volunteers Needed

We need a chairperson to lead the preparations for our Goodbye Maryvale Carnival. This will be a sendoff to our old building before we move to the holding school for two years. This is not intended as a fundraiser so logistics will be less complicated than that of the Fall Fling. Please email communications@maryvalepta.org if you want to volunteer or need additional information.
