HOLIDAY SHOP
A few volunteers have stepped up to help with the shop this year, so it looks like we are able to host it - at least for one more year!
But we do need help setting it up on 12/11 at 7:30PM.
We also need some volunteers to work the shop on 12/12, 12/13 and the morning of 12/14 (the number of days the shop is open will depend on the number of volunteers).
And then some volunteers to pack up on the 14th.
If you are able to assist, please contact Marissa atmduran8904@gmail.com.
