Volunteering is Living

Karen and Earl, you're golden! You know you'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. You're such cutups — you're the bee's knees! Your enthusiasm is infectious and you brighten the day of just about everyone you encounter. But, you can't do that sitting on your duff at home, right?! A rolling stone gathers no moss. Your duffs have no moss! You volunteer!!!

OK, let's not put the cart before the horse. Speaking of horses, we never look a gift horse in the mouth. A hearty THANK YOU is due to you both during this volunteer appreciation week! Volunteers like you help your Library with 60,000 hours each year! You understand that many hands make light work.
