      While I can understand the relationship of owning a pretty far to well as I have rescued all through out my life. Going on to your phone and commenting is just as easy add changing your rsvp. I had willing college students, who were turned away., I will not kick you out looker the other young lady, butI will block you from attending any further volunteer events. You're more than welcome to leave if not pleased

    Thank you to everyone who attended. Those of you who were not courteous enough to change your rsvp and in the long run kept my patient members from attending. I am sorry the policy is the policy, I gave you more than enough time to do this, I have to let you go. You can sign up again in a year
