• The Fresh & Lively outreach luncheon program is looking for a volunteer to help co-ordinate the entertainment for the lunches that are held the first three Fridays of the month at the Kent Street. The volunteer job involves contacting the performer and scheduling them into the calendar for upcoming lunch beginning in the fall.
