and continue to get along with me, you might want to print out this blog post,
and re-read what a volunteer is over and over again until you understand it.

Join us. We are a great group. We are a team. We help each other out. We've
got each other's backs. The kids all benefit in the end. And isn't that worth it???

Hmmmm???
