A huge “thank you” goes out to all the boys who helped with the Families First mother/son fun night on Friday. You have no idea how much it means to those little boys to see you helping at an event like that. If you are recording volunteer hours, keep in mind that you can count any hours you spent picking up or returning equipment, setting up, tearing down, and helping at the event. Stop by the guidance office if you need a form to log your hours.
