Volunteers are super! 
Thank you to the many member volunteers who have helped the club this fall. 
Ann Hedgebeth, Ellen Feldman and Marc McPherson volunteered at the September test session -- great helpers! And thanks to new test chairs, Kristianne Sandoval and Ginny Gillam!
Larry and Ellen Feldman volunteer at check-in on Thursday evening, and Marc has been handling the 5:10 Thursday check-in. Kristianne and Heidi Trimble handle Monday check-in. Kathy Mountcastle does Sunday check-in. Ann has been volunteering wherever needed. Everyone is doing a great job!
It’s been wonderful to have so many helpful and reliable volunteers.
