Rockville Target Renovation/Grand Reopening Volunteers Needed

The Rockville Target will be holding their grand reopening on Friday, May 31st from 4 pm to 6 pm. Maryvale has been asked to provide volunteers to show the diversity in the Rockville area. They would like art from around the world displayed at the entrance, including respective country flags. They would also like Maryvale families to host Passport tables around the store with information about their cultures. They have offered to make a donation to the PTA in return.
