Fool for Art, April 16th!

Fool for Art

Fool for Art is right around the corner!  On April 16th, the community will converge on the Midlothian campus for a day of art, crafts, fun, and foolery.  PTK-BOO does our part by working in the Art of Learning tent, a place for children of all ages to come to learn from Tyler students, faculty, and staff with different hands-on activities and programs.  PTK-BOO will join with the Tau Rho chapter to help visitors create their own pinback buttons at the Bright as a Button table.  This is a great way to meet fellow PTK members and help Tyler and Phi Theta Kappa with community outreach and engagement.

If you would like to help with this event, please sign up for whatever time that you have available (1 hour increments) using the following Doodle poll: http://doodle.com/poll/vm27vb9rs7rfe9cp.  The event is on Saturday, April 16th from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. on the Midlothian campus grounds. If you sign up to help by Friday, March 25th,  you will receive a link to vote for the PTK t-shirt that will be provided to all BOO members who participate in Fool for Art. Please note that the shirt with most votes will be what is ordered for everyone. Voting will end on Sunday, March 27th to have shirts ordered in time for the event.

Remember, once you have volunteered 5 hours with PTK-BOO, the chapter will purchase a golden PTK tassel for you to wear with your regalia at graduation!

If you have any questions about volunteering for this event, please contact Molli Gonzalez at mgonzalez@jtcc.edu.
