*If plan on volunteering-You MUST come to training session*
 
Instead of trying to recruit new Volunteer Coordinators, Richie & I will continue in that role, but we have added a new "Volunteer Coordinator of the Day." This involves being the point person for that day - making sure all of the volunteers arrive (and finding a sub if they don't or letting us know), checking to see if there are any needs (supplies, missing items , guest or volunteer requests, etc...) and letting us know. A great way to help, w/out the admin part! Feel free to email us if you wish to discuss it further. Thank you in advance!!!! Katherine & Richie  Cullom
 
If you have questions, please don't hesitate to email Katherine Cullom at krcullom@gmail.com
