    Don't forget to wear closed toe shoes and if you plan to volunteer, wear comfortable clothes you don't mind getting dirty or wet. If you can, fill out the waiver at the link below and bring it with you (don't stress if you can't print it.) Also, please park on the right of the driveway so that trucks can pass on the left. If there is no parking - you can park on the grounds of the old house across the street. Please note that the meeting is under a covered pavilion so come on out rain or shine. See you there! Here is the link to the waiver:
