Coming Home
by Exec. Dir. Jim Nute, Mayhew Program
You have a terrific way of making our Tuesday! Thanks for the great news, Don! Laconia Kiwanis has been so supportive of what's happening here for the boys. We could not do it without you -- and that's the absolute truth! Please pass along my thanks to everyone. It may be too late for folks over there to hear this but...We ARE having an Island volunteer day this Saturday, May 7th. If anyone has any interest -- I know Larry Murphy has been terrific about this -- please do have them give me a call. Franklin Rotary will be out with six folks and I'm sure they'd love the company and we could certainly use a few more hands. As we move through the month here, I'll be sure to give Paul Cotton more advanced notice should we find more jobs where we could use more hands. Thank you, Don, for offering the help. If anyone is likely to be interested in a fall project, I'm sure we'll have a few then too as we close up the Island. Be great (and thanks again). (w) 744-6131,
