With all the activity coming up in the next months, we need to ensure a good supply of supporting volunteers. In May and June the Education Program will often require a dozen interpreters a day. As the days get warmer and the grass begins to grow, we will need volunteers to ride our lawn mowers to keep the grounds looking neat and tidy. As mentioned in my April 21 post below, we have a new section of corral that needs paint. We would welcome volunteer painters for this project. Anyone contemplating volunteering at MHV is invited to join us for our annual volunteer orientation on Thursday, April 26, at 7:00 PM in the Village Centre Auditorium. Come and learn more about the opportunities available.
