    I was really impressed at the event yesterday. I was moved to start a meetup group focused on charity. Every time I participate is a day like Shea organized yesterday I want to do more, and then I never hear about opportunities. The group I started is here on meetup - http://www.meetup.com/Charity-Awareness-and-Opportunity/ - If you are involved with a charity and would like to suggest an upcoming charity event as a meetup, the vision of the group is to create a gathering of members willing to volunteer time as they are moved and available. Need some membership and events to get the group off the ground. Thanks again to everyone yesterday. It was too cool to be a very small part of such an amazing day!!!!

    • Shea L.

      Hey all! Yep, we have plenty of deck hands! No need to worry about that! :)

      September 3, 2013

  • Jon H.

    It looks like some drivers need a deck hand. I have not been given a job yet and plan to attend and help out. I am a very experienced driver, wakeboard instructor and make a good crew hand. Lets talk and you can quickly bring me up to speed. [masked] Jon A. Hegreness

  • Shea L.

    Okay...LAST date change. I PROMISE. Sunshine Acres called to tell me that over half of they kids would be out of town for a family visit day on August 31st. So now it will be September 7th. This is secured. I apologize for all of the confusion. Thank you for understanding!

    June 11, 2013

  • Shea L.

    We didn't have enough interest for a weekday event and the location couldn't be secured for that date.

    May 1, 2013

  • Suzanne

    I thought the date was June 13th?

    May 1, 2013

  • Shea L.

    The location is tenative for many reasons, but we will secure either Bartlett or Pleasant by the end of the week. Please let me know of any questions!
