1. Something to understand:


You may check the volunteer sign-up list and see four volunteers and believe we're covered for that day. WE cannot remove people from Sign-Up Genius. Only the original person that signs up can remove their own name. If people let me know they cannot volunteer, I can't change the list. Just FYI. 

THANK YOU to our lunchtime volunteers last week: 

Jennifer L., Cameo G., Bethany G., Josh B., Howard D., and Katie G. Thank you for your gift of time.  At this time,we have TWO signed up for Wednesday and TWO signed up for Thursday. We need 3 more volunteers for Wednesday and 3 more volunteers for Thursday. Thanks for helping!
