Help Wanted -- Volunteers!

Please consider volunteering some spare time to help with various workshop activities. This is a great opportunity to network with tai chi friends you seldom see and to meet many new ones. Even if you volunteer only one or two hours during the pre-conference TCR weekend or weeklong workshop your help will be greatly appreciated.

We could use help with setup/clean up at the Sunday Meet & Greet, sales of raffle tickets throughout the week, staffing the TCHC table, and more!  Contact Denise Murray at dmurray@tchc.info to let her know you're interested.

Raffle to raise Scholarship Funds
(all week)

Each year we offer some great raffle prizes to help raise money for academic scholarships that are awarded to qualified members of the Community for the June Workshop. The drawing for these prizes will happen at the Friday evening social dinner and dance.  
Betty Scanlon’s handmade quilt is always the centerpiece of our raffles!  Photos to come!
You will be able to buy tickets for the quilt drawing as well as any of our other prizes throughout the week by finding one of the many dedicated volunteers who help us with ticket sales.    

Banquet & Raffle Drawing
(Friday evening)

Friday night it’s time to party and just enjoy spending time with each other. Once everyone finishes eating dinner, we will have drawings for raffle prizes so be sure to bring your tickets.  After that it will be time to “dance to the music” -- the way that only tai chi people love to dance.

We have an exciting week ahead at the June workshop, and we look forward to meeting you all there!
