Some of us may be cleaning furniture, sorting items, staging items in the showroom, painting, or doing one of many other jobs. This will be fun!

    I am glad I attended this meetup. I was received by the staff and allowed to chose an assignment. Friendliness was the order of the day. I will volunteer again at this place.

    Doug, I really hate to cancel this late, but i awoke early with a very painful sore throat. I just finished a course of antibiotics for strep, and I'm afraid i need round 2. I am taking a medical team to Beirut Monday for 2 weeks, and so think doing all the "doctor's orders" things (rest, fluids, handwashing) are good for me to follow right now. This is one of my favorite activities, so i am truly sorry to miss it. John

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
