Glebe Spring Social & Auction

The Glebe Spring Social & Auction is seeking volunteers to commit only a few hours of time starting in January 2019.  We are seeking people to help on February 10, 2019 at craft day, to work with the business donations committee, or to make calls during the February 18, 2019 business donations phone bank.  There’s opportunity to commit as little as one hour of time, but the benefit to the Social & Auction will be much greater.  The links to sign up are below.  Thank you in advance!
