Start Homecoming Dance Planning in August
Posted by Stumps Spirit on August 9, 2010
Don’t delay! The more bookings you have to do (hall, D.J., catering, security, etc.), the earlier you should start!
Begin with selecting the Homecoming Committee, which you can do by recruitment, a general sign-up for volunteers, a “draft” (i.e., of class officers), or any combination of the above. Use last year as a guideline for how many volunteers you’ll need. Although your school’s “mileage” may vary, the subcommittee/task breakdown will shake out something like the following.
