Coordinator Report – Becky Gagliardo
Very warm today, had a great group of volunteers. Many thanks to Barbara Ann, Amanda, Kristen, Andrew, June, Rich, Babs, Maureen, and Sarah. Tanya did a fantastic job with the workgroup and Brooklynne got to help until she was pulled for tours. Caity and Christina worked on the project later in the day.
All of the great interns and partners kept the tours and gift shop running smoothly as usual. Many thanks to Barbara Brooks who brought us 2 more of the scales for food prep. Jen and Devin knocked out meds and Andrew, Amanda, and Barbara did food prep in record time.
Big thanks to Rich who was able to convince his Keisha girl to eat today.;
