I could use some MGers to assist with welcoming the new class on Tuesday Oct 17th at 9:30AM!

To refresh your memory – we have name tags to give out, binders/USB’s to sign for, Soil Test Kits to sign for, and folders to give out!!

Also, if anyone would like to bake a treat or two for the new class, that would be great!  I usually bake something, but I am in temporary quarters and cannot bake very well without my tools!!!
