Want to be a part of the arts? Want to get involved in your community? Are you a teen, age 16 or older, who needs community service hours for school? Retired and looking for something fun to do? The Alden is looking for volunteers to serve as ushers during its performances. If you are interested in ushering at the Alden, fill out a volunteer form online or at the Center's reception desk.
