Homecoming Hosts
Of the thousands of guests attending homecoming this year there will be a small group that need special attention. They are WWII veterans or VIPs with mobility issues and other potential needs. We are seeking volunteers who are available to serve as personal escorts for these individuals on Thursday, Friday and Saturday of Homecoming Weekend. Responsibilities may include chauffeuring their assigned guest in a golf cart, escorting their guest to assigned seats at various events, monitoring their guest’s overall comfort and well-being, and other duties as needed to ensure these special visitors have personal attention throughout the weekend.
