Leaders Needed for RCD 2017-2108

We have had three leaders step forward, allowing three activities to removed from the Parking Lot for 2017-2018.

Fred Brandt Membership

Jim Riticher Junior Achievement

Roy Ethridge Table Placards

However, we still have 7 vital activities that need managers/ coordinators. If leaders are not found by June 2, 2017, these activities will not be done in 2017-2018. These are activities that we have come to depend on, but that will cease if a leader does not step forward. Most are easy to do. The current occupants of the Parking Lot are:
