Jim Mecsko receives Hero of Service Award!

New helpers are always welcome, especially in late spring through early fall, when many of our long-time volunteers have headed North.  And while we have work to do on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday mornings, volunteers need not commit to all three days.  Just come when you can and leave when you must.  Many hands lighten the load.  Lots of men to help with the heavy lifting are especially appreciated.  Ask for Tom or Kim when you come.

Occasionally, we have lots of helpers.  If you were to come one day and we don't need you, please come again.  Our regulars are often unavailable on any given day because of travel, doctor appointments, or other commitments.
