    How long is this event?

      It depends on how many volunteers and how complicated the house is. It usually lasts until afternoon, until the painting is finished. I will be posting/e-mailing more information this afternoon. Thanks so much for volunteering! I hope you guys take lots of pics since there is no host for this event!

    Hi team. I will not be able to make this event. Can I get someone to volunteer to be host? All you have to do is greet our group as they arrive, take calls if anyone is lost, and take pics to post on Meetup. Please let me know if you can help out with this. Thx!
