So it seems that summer has decided to join us (finally)!  I hope you have all been enjoying this wonderful weather.  If not, be sure to get outside on this long weekend.  Travel safe and enjoy your weekend!

Here are this week's volunteer opportunities.  We hope that you zoom into action and volunteer!  I realize that's cheesy but as a Hoosier, I had to reference the Indy 500 (Hoosier = resident, not school, Boiler Up!). 

Contact Sammi for any information on the following opportunities.

No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another.  Thank you.
