ADS Workday and Stage Installation Scheduled
Coming up on Saturday, February 24th from 9-12, ADS will host a volunteer workday. Last year the Middle School secured a grant to build a small stage in the outdoor center courtyard. The stage has been designed, supplies are ordered, and materials are on their way! If you have experience with building, please consider coming to help us out! Contact Taylor Young email@example.com if you'd like to help us out!
On this same day, I will be hosting tutorials for the upcoming Amplify Austin Fundraiser platform. This is a great way for those who are active on Social Media to set their own goal to help raise funds for Amplify Austin Day (6pm on March 1 - 6pm on March 2) If you're interested in learning how to set up a page and are willing to teach others how to do the same, please consider coming out to learn how during the workday on Feb. 24 from 9-12.
