VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Are you interested in giving back to LIR? Do you enjoy working with volunteers? The Volunteer Development Committee is looking for members to become part of our committee and help us as we develop training programs for coordinators and office volunteers, organize a New Member Welcome, track volunteerism in LIR, and match coordinators to classes for the upcoming semester. If interested, please contact Karen Dallman [kdallman@new.rr.com]. We meet the third Tuesday of each month, and would love to have you join us!

IMPORTANT PARKING NOTICE !

Several of our LIR members have been parking behind the museum in the Staff Parking Only area.  We have been asked by the museum to inform people that this particular parking lot is for staff members only and if we continue to abuse it
we may end up getting parking tickets.  So please do not use the staff only
parking lot at the museum.
