Blankner Beautification tomorrow from 8-12

As our summer break comes to a close, it's a great time to pay it forward and say "thanks" to our charter organization, Blankner K-8, by helping out with their beautification efforts.  Blanker is looking for volunteers on Saturday, August 15 between 8 a.m. and noon to help with weeding, trimming, laying mulch, etc.  Even if you can come for 30 minutes, it's a huge help. Don't forget your sunscreen and beverage for hydration as well as any yard tools and gloves you may find useful.

We hope to see you there tomorrow.
