SouthFest starts at midnight on June 3—and cleanup minions arrive at 3:30AM to magically return South from an amazing party destination, back to our regular old institution of secondary education. The night shift is a world of its own—laughing and joking while we tear down plastic, fold drapery, wind up cords, and generally undo all the wonderful work the decorating committee has just done. It’s a terrific camaraderie that we create in the middle of the night. Please let us know if we can count on you this year, and please tell your friends—middle school parents help, too! NOTE: While parents of Prom attendees cannot be present during SouthFest, the night crew is an exception! Your son or daughter will not mind if you show up at South at 3:30 in the morning. If you would like to volunteer to help, email southfestorganizer
