WSCSA NEWS AND UPDATES

Hi Members,

We're looking for additional volunteers this week in the 2-4pm and 6-8:30pm slots. Stop by and help out if you can. Also, if you haven't had a chance to sign up for your volunteer shifts yet, be sure to do so here. All summer members must complete 2 shifts! 

Also, if you have the cheese add-on, there was a delay with the shipment and your cheese will arrive next week! 

Cheers,
