friends of Greenfield Dance

Volunteer

Friends of Greenfield Dance, Inc. is an all-volunteer organization. We wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for friends like you who generously offer their time to ensure the long term health of our dance and music community. These gifts are more difficult to quantify but no less important to us. Can you help at our Fall Frolic or Contra Prom? Help us spread the word about our programs? Transport others to events? Research or write grants? Volunteer on one of our Committees? Take photographs of events? Help with mailings? Let us know you have an interest!

If you would like to volunteer, please contact Ralph Sturgen, providing him with your contact information and letting us know that you are interested. Contact link coming soon.
