I hope you are enjoying this last month of summer when the weather starts cooling down (some days) and the days get a little shorter. We have a couple of volunteer days coming up this month, if you haven’t had a chance to volunteer yet this year. But we also have our Volunteer Appreciation BBQ coming up on Sunday! I always enjoy this event and getting a group of people together who enjoy volunteering and spend their time making a difference in the lives of others. I hope you can join us. Details follow in this message. I hope to see you there!
