Family Spring Fest at Kettering University

Hello NSBE Detroit Professionals,
On May 12th, from 12 pm to 4 pm, Kettering University’s NSBE B-Section Chapter will host its annual Family Spring Fest. This is where they take over the campus football stadium and allow children of all ages (typically 9th grade or younger) to play games, participate in obstacle courses, and enter raffles as they would at a festival. They would like our participation for volunteering with set up (10 am to 12 pm), engaging and directing youth and parents during the Spring Fest, and breakdown (4 pm to 5 pm). If you are interested in participating, please let me know as soon as possible. I would like to report the number of confirmed volunteers to the chapter by May 7th.  I am open to carpooling, as well.
