Set-up for Art Show
Help set-up Waukesha County’s Health and Human Services Art Fair for youth. Responsibilities include moving tables and chairs, and decorating the room with scarves, plants, and other objects.

In November and December, share your Christmas spirit with elders at Linden Court by singing Christmas carols. The best times for caroling are while elders are eating dinner at 4 p.m. or just after dinner time at 5 p.m. Sing 20 minutes on the east side and 20 minutes on the west side of the building.
