We love our Volunteers!

Volunteers are needed for 2018!

Keeping Dave’s dream alive requires the help of many volunteers! There are a wide variety of things to help with, from behind the scenes to working directly with the public. Volunteer orientations are scheduled for adults, and also for the middle school, high school, and families with elementary aged children.
