The time is fast approaching for the Special Olympic Volleyball event. The Special Olympics Volleyball event will be played on Nov. 18th & 19th 2017 at the Floyd Little Athletic Center in New Haven. The same athletic center as last year.  This is the first weekend before Thanksgiving.  Registration will begin at 7:30am for both Sat. and Sunday. Opening ceremony on Saturday will begin 9:00AM SHARP. Coffee and donuts, in the morning, and lunch will be provided. The directions to and from the facility are on the website. ELKS and friends don't forget to sign in at registration under your district and lodge number. 
 
Over the last couple of years the volunteer attendance has been slowly going down. Especially on Sundays. The Special Olympics of Connecticut questioned me if we could still handle the event. OF COURSE WE CAN. We need to bring our volunteer attendance up like it used to be in the past.  Don't take it for granted that some one else will do the job. 
 
Remember this is not an ELKS members only event. We need volunteers. Bring your family, neighbors, friends and teenagers with their friends. If you know any one who needs Community Service hours (for High School, College or other) please bring them I will sign their papers. If they can help us we sure can help them. That's what we do. ELKS CARE-ELKS SHARE.  We can all share our time to help out the Special Olympics of Conn. participants. WE NEED VOLUNTEERS.
