 Adult Volunteers Needed! The Green Club NEEDS PARENT HELP with our recycling in order to keep it running!! Currently we have only one volunteer that brings paper and cardboard to ADDWC in Eureka. In order to help us, you would need to volunteer your time (about 1 ½ hours) and drive the cardboard and paper recycling amounts over there. An enclosed trailer or truck works well, but a couple of SUVs and/or mini-vans would also work! :) If you could help 1x a month or every 6 weeks, please email the Green Club directors of volunteers, President, or Vice President IMMEDIATELY!  Teacher Supervisor:mlelm@mgsredbirds.org Presidents:tnkile@mgsredbirds.org elpete@mgsredbirds.org Vice President:mjemer@mgsredbirds.org Director of Volunteers: tcaarm@mgsredbirds.org dgbark@mgsredbirds.org The next Green Club meeting is November 29 after school until 4 in Mrs. Lelm’s room #44.
