Please include your maiden name if applicable and what part you sing ( soprano, alto, etc.) At this time practices will be later in 2017.

Each room will showcase a decade and its Humberside memories and we need your help! Volunteers are needed to organize room content, help with setup for the weekend and supervise the room during the weekend for an hour or so. We are also looking for any memorabilia you have that you are willing to donate or lend to the alumni. If you are interested in any aspect please email Doug Wighton at   placing Decade room in the email subject line

 Volunteers Needed

We will need volunteers for several areas prior to and during the weekend. If you would like to volunteer please email Jacquie Raidl at

Volunteers will be needed for putting together the welcome bags before the weekend, during registration, guides at the school, decade room supervisors and general help. An hour or two of your time is appreciated.

For Decade room volunteers email Doug Wighton at
