We are looking for people to decorate on May 6, and on May 7 we need people for admissions, registration, security, tear-down, etc.

Every hour counts towards your volunteer hours, and if you already have your hours covered, then come on out anyway.  FREE LUNCH AVAILABLE.

Ice Show – Photo Consent Form

The Gloucester Skating Club will be taking a photograph of each group performing at the “A Celebration of Skating” Ice Show.  The group photo will be taken after each group has completed their number at the Dress Rehearsal on Saturday May 7th 2016.

It is the intention of the Gloucester Skating Club to sell these group photos to the skaters as a memento of their participation in the Ice Show and as a fundraiser to help offset the costs of the Ice Show.  See Photo Order Form for additional information.

The photos will remain the property of the Gloucester Skating Club and will not be placed on the Gloucester Skating Club website and are not intended for resale or distribution.

A completed consent form will be required for your skater to participate in the group photo.  This form must be completed and returned to the Gloucester Skating Club office by Friday May 6th 2016.
