Boise First UCC will be volunteering at the Shakespeare Festival on Saturday, September 1 for the production of Pride and Prejudice. If you’ve not volunteered at Shakespeare you are in for a treat. It’s a lot of fun! We usher, hand out programs, collect the tickets, and get to see the show -- and Boise First UCC will get a shout out from the stage. We need 20 volunteers. Contact Harriet Almerico to volunteer.
