Volunteers Needed for Saturday Series
Saturday Series has offered an enriching program for the children of Manhasset for many years. The term for the current team is drawing to an end and this program CANNOT continue in the winter if new chairpersons are not identified. These are positions of shared responsibility, so we are currently looking to fill multiple Chairperson and Co-Chairperson positions. If your child enjoys all that Saturday Series has to offer, please consider devoting your time so that Saturday Series can continue it's long standing tradition. Enlist with a friend or group of friends and share the responsibilities! Please email if interested.
