7:45 to 8:30 a.m. Norwood Middle School – registration will take place in the school gymnasium. Driving directions and details on where to park will be provided later in this e-mail. CAR POOL if at all possible and be sure to arrive on time.

If you pre-registered for a corporate team, go DIRECTLY to the table with a sign for your corporate team (tables will be roughly in alphabetical order). There you will sign in and get a t-shirt.

If you didn’t select a corporate team when you pre-registered online, or if you don’t remember, go to the “Give Back Registration” table where you will be assigned a house or directed where to go. Then, you’ll go to the table for the corporate registration table for the house you were assigned to where you will sign in again and get a t-shirt. Yes, you will sign in two times if you aren’t pre-registered with a corporate team.

If you are not sure where to go, volunteers at the Give Back Registration table can help direct you to the right place.

If you are with a friend who has not pre-registered online, have that person first stop at the general “Give Back Registration” table, where he or she must sign a waiver in order to paint. ALL VOLUNTEERS THAT HAVE NOT REGISTERED ONLINE MUST FILL OUT A WAIVER.

Once you sign in and get a t-shirt, get a Paint the Town water bottle to take to the house with you. You’ll be provided water at the house to fill up & stay hydrated! Then grab breakfast and just hang tight until announcements at 8:30am which will take place outside of the gym. A bus will drive you to the house.please do not try to drive yourself to the house as there is limited space available.

Breakfast is being provided and will be available during registration. Breakfast will include breakfast sandwiches from Vonderhaars, donuts, bananas, muffins, milk, juice, and coffee.

Volunteers will load up on the buses to get to the houses for the day. Make sure when you sign in with your corporate team you look for your bus number on the registration sheet. REMEMBER that number. It’s important and will ultimately get you to where you need to be for the day.

What to wear/bring
Wear clothes that you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty and t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers. Your shoes should be sturdy with closed toes (no flip-flops!!) and don’t forget to apply sunscreen and maybe even some bug spray! You may want to bring a hat/sunglasses, but leave your valuables at home.

Lunch will be delivered to the house you are painting. We will be having Chick-fil-A sandwiches for lunch as well as Grippos chips and cookies. If you have special dietary needs, we recommend bringing a bagged lunch.

RAIN OR SHINE, regardless of the forecast, please plan on showing up in the morning for registration. Any changes to the schedule due to weather will be determined at registration. Facebook will also provide updates.
