It’s that time again. Come join us during our 2nd and final informational night next Monday, October 21 in the Pere Marquette Room in Kirkhof. We will start out with a presentation about our organization and then YOU will have a chance to ask questions and meet the Site Leaders for all 19 of our trips this year. The Site Leaders will not only be able to tell you a little about the trip they are leading, but they will also have snacks and treats to share! We cannot wait to see you there. Take the first step towards making a difference!
