Donna's Ditties: February 2018

Hello my friends, I hope you are doing well this winter. I have some spring bulbs popping up already! Your hours are so important to our organization, allowing us to show funders the commitment our engaged volunteers give each year. Please post your Fall semester hours. You can post them at HERE.

You may feel like you are working with a different person. It's frustrating
