Parking is behind their building off of Redfield between Lofland and Butler. There is a sign that indicates the parking lot is permit only but park there anyway! Once you turn into that lot you will see the guest parking. Do not park in front of the building as cars will be towed.

    Lunch was great. All of the volunteers who showed up worked really hard. Less than 20 faithful volunteers actually showed up unfortunately.. The recipients were very appreciative of our efforts.

    Only 17 members were signed in. We did run a few less than expected and most of the diners were served through the line rather than at the tables. The volunteers were great and as usual ready and willing to fill in wherever necessary.

    Do we meet up at a certain place or do we need to ask for someone? This is my first time and I don't want to wonder around aimlessly

      Allen, up at the top of the page it tells you where to meet -- in this case, sign in at the front door and go to the dining room. You'll see lots of regulars in there setting up

    I would like a spot if someone is unable to come.

      Stacey, there are typically several no-shows, so it wouldn't hurt to come out and help if you'd like.
