The Spirit of Cahaba



News 11/07/2011


We are in our final week of Oak Mountain Youth Football and have two games left. We are in need of 5 volunteers to work both Tuesday and Thursday night. There is only one game per night. Volunteers need to arrive at the HS Soccer field concession stand by 5:45, the stand opens at 6 pm. Plan to be there until 8 pmish. I also need someone to volunteer to stop by Zaxbys to pick up the sandwiches at 5:30.
Please email Julie Rock at

This concession opportunity was offered to the band last year, and requires parent volunteers to staff the stand. The band does receive a portion of the sales. If you have any questions regarding Concessions, please feel free to email me at the above address. Thanks again to all this that volunteered this year!
