« on: April 03, 2017, 01:45:44 PM »
Good afternoon everyone, here are the opportunities that I have uncovered so far for May. If anyone finds out anything else in the area for the month of May, please post it here as well. We have talked a good deal about doing more volunteer work as a grove, and I have this section provided as a resource, so please look at these opportunities and if anyone is planning on going to any of them, post that you are and we can possibly meet up.
