Fall Kick-Off Rally
SRSLY members set up tents and tables at one of the first Chelsea High School Varsity Football home games of the season. Youth and adult volunteers pass out rally towels, SRSLY temporary tattoos, and information about our coalition. Plus, youth can play Plinko for prizes. After a short half-time announcement, youth members throw SRSLY T-shirts into the stands.
In conjunction with Sounds and Sights on Thursday nights in downtown Chelsea, SRSLY offers free outdoor movies starting at dusk during the summer. SRSLY public service announcements are shown before each movie, along with recognition of our sponsors. Movies are projected onto a screen on the back of the McKinley building behind the Clocktower Complex. Lawn seating is available (blankets or chairs are recommended). Popcorn and concessions are sold under the gazebo. Youth and adult volunteers are needed for many jobs, including set-up, popcorn sales, crowd supervision, and clean up.
New Year’s Eve Party
The SRSLY regional New Year’s Eve Party contradicts the conventional wisdom that this holiday can’t be celebrated without alcohol. All of the SRSLY communities come together to throw a big party at Beach Middle School in Chelsea. Youth can enjoy video games, sports in the gym, swimming, arts & crafts, cookie decorating, the photo booth, and free pizza! The night ends with team games and a countdown to the new year.
Volunteer Appreciation Party
This is our time to say thanks to everyone who helped out over the course of the year! The party always includes dinner and dessert, plus an award ceremony to recognize volunteers for their contributions. Held during the summer, the event also includes games and the opportunity to have fun with other coalition members.
