    Weather update: Looks like it should start clearing up around 5, but we want you to feel safe, so use your judgement and if you need to come a little later that is fine. We serve at 6. Feel free to call my cell[masked] or call Ruth.

    Hi volunteers, there's a weather warning tomorrow night at the same time as this event. We'll post around noon tomorrow if we need to cancel, but for now please use your own judgement if you feel safe getting out or not. Thank you.
