We need your help to help keep the neighborhood center going to and to continue our programs. We are looking for volunteers to help mow the Oakwood Memorial Beach, volunteers to corrdinate the Halloween and Christmas parties, and new members to the Board of Directors. If you are interested in any of these positions, contact Cheryl at the center at 342-0129.
