(You may volunteer for more than one committee if you wish.)
Retail Donations Committee – Chair Kim Hammer. There are a couple of great ways to help out on this committee, each with a different time commitment. Something for everyone!
Sales Force - Do you find time at all hours to check your email and dash off messages? Would you be willing to follow up with about 20 local retailers, mostly via email? The minimal time commitment (2-4 hours a month of email or cell phone calls) is from September - February. The committee will gather on two evenings (November and January). We could really use you to help the bottom line of the 2019 auction!
Retail Pick-up Committee – Chair Lauren Harris. Responsible for picking up donated items or gift certificates at area businesses. Items must be picked up within a week of getting the assignment. This is an extremely flexible volunteer job. Items will be dropped off at the home of Linda Wolfe, Auction Solicitations Chair, after they have been picked up.
Decorations Committee – Chair Brigid Beck. The chairs need your help to get the auction space ready for Bunker Hill As Seen On TV! This committee is responsible for the creation of the decorations for the auction, set up and take down. There will be several working meetings starting in January 2019.
Silent Auction Set-up Committee – Chair Angie McBeth. Responsible for setting up the silent auction items during the evening before the auction and the day of the auction. It’s a great way to get an early peek at the items you will want to bid on! A few members may also need to work with decorations committee for some new silent auction display ideas!
Silent Auction Item Pick-Up Committee – Responsible for distributing items and certificates after our fabulous auction. You must stay at the auction until at least 10 – 11 pm. There will be a short training session during the day of auction.
Photo Gallery Committee - Co-Chairs Blair Canfield and Callie Ezell. Want to get to know your child's classmates? Volunteer for this year's Photo Gallery! We need both Photographers and Assistants for each grade level. Photographers must have a digital camera (no smart phones). Assistants are needed to help keep smiles in place and shirts tucked in. Individual pictures are taken of each child during their recess time September-October. An entire grade typically takes 7 recesses. Retakes will be scheduled in January; all photos must be completed by December 16th. Photographer or assistant will edit and download photos to a WETRANSFER file. Help will be provided on how to download.
Kids’ Creation Committee – Co-Chairs: Lauren Hufford and Karen Teegarden. With the assistance of our fabulous new art teacher, Sarah Rimboch, help the students of BHE display their Bunker Hill As Seen On TV inspired artistic skills! Every student will make a one of a kind piece of art that will be sold at the auction. As a committee member you will assist each student, with the guidance of Ms. Rimboch, Lauren and Karen, in your child’s grade during an art class. The artwork will be done late in the fall semester. This is great way to get to know the other students in your child’s grade! Help will also be needed assembling, hanging and selling the art at the auction.
Grade Level Donation Coordinators – Co-Chairs: Shannon Strickler and Lauren Hufford. Each grade at BHE will be able to make their own donations to the auction! Grade level coordinators will be responsible for reaching out to room parents via email, collecting monetary donations and using those funds to purchase an age appropriate item or package to be auctioned off to benefit BHE (examples include a gaming system, electric scooter, trampoline, American Girl package, Minecraft package, MMS spirit package, etc).
Flockers - Take part in this fun Bunker Hill Tradition! If your yard is flocked with a Bunker Hill As Seen On TV yard sign, pay it forward and flock another BHE family!
Flocking volunteers will be responsible for picking up the signs and donation, double checking with Captain Jennifer Sander to make sure the next nominee hasn’t already been flocked and then moving the sign to the next yard. This will all happen daily between 7-10 am. Shifts will be one week. There will be two sets of signs going around at the same time. Thus, two flocking volunteers are needed for each block Feb 1 - March 1.
