Rain Is Inevitable

.. apparently. So we are moving the book sale indoors. Saturday May 21 inside the community center. 10-3. Thanks for all the wonderful donations. Now it's time to come buy. (Think of this as neighborly recycling.)

We still need volunteers - the shifts are:
8-10 -- setting up
10-12 -- refreshing tables
12-2 -- refreshing tables
2-4 -- last sales and packing
- but this is flexible.

Service learning hours are available for high-school students who wish to help at the sale.

Please e-mail ellenr@takomaparkmd.gov if you can volunteer.
