Volunteer and Donor Appreciation Reception 2018
We’d like to thank everyone who came to our Volunteer and Donor Reception on February 28, and of course we send an ongoing thank you to ALL volunteers and donors, including those who couldn’t be with us this time. (We hope to see you next year!) Also a sincere thank you to sponsors and hosts American Fresh Brewhouse, to the Students of the Fells Ambassadors for joining us with their creative icebreaker games, and to volunteer Susan Fairchild for the photos.
