Meeting Thursday 12/14

We will be having an orientation/season preparation meeting on Thursday, December 14th at 3:30. The meeting should last until about 5:30 and will be in our “normal” meeting place at the Bethany Church. New team members, we will meet in the cafeteria of QHS and walk across the street together at 3:25 or you can use the attached directions. Note that there is a phone number (617-376-1100) to call in case you might not be able to find us.

At this meeting, we will show the new team members around our location and begin to get ourselves and our space organized for the upcoming build season.

Look forward to seeing you there.
