Y'all. There are simply no words to describe our wonderful volunteers. They set up, take down, cook lunch, serve lunch and clean up. And, as this video shows, they make the athletes feel like super stars. These folks are as good as gold and some of the kindest hearts in our community. We thank you for all you do!!!
