Your help is needed to count and sort 90,000 post cards to be distributed to local schools in February. We will also be stapling raffle tickets, and stuffing bags in preparation for the show. There is a job for everyone.
This is a big job that requires help from as many people as possible.
Come join the fun, make friends, and get to know other members.
Pizza and soda will be served.
