We plan to clean up and move some heavy things! So we need "muscles" for our
Work & Play Weekend. There are a number of tasks for "less-muscled" volunteers, too!
During the weekend, we'll offer all volunteers a tasty dinner, and hot tub use.
Snack food, bottled water, soft drinks, coffee and tea, will be available to all
who register and come to this Work & Play Weekend. Breakfast cereals, and other
culinary "delights" are here, too. Let us know if you have special dietary
needs, or food allergies.
