Tidbits for Weather: From tank tops and air conditioners to light jackets and furnaces turned on all in a 24-hour period and not just once, but several times. This month we said goodbye to Sarah, a young volunteer whose family moved. She was a great helper for her age. I was impressed more than once as she saw some- thing that needed doing and she went ahead and did it. She is missed. So, once again, I am begging for more volunteers, Volunteers are needed to help in the kitchen and dining area. We do not cook the food here if that is what is holding you back from volunteering. Sani- tizing, setting and clearing tables, dishing up and serving food and washing dishes in a commercial dishwasher are some of the tasks that help is needed for.
