Jean Hayes is the Friends of Will Liaison. She started volunteering in February and focuses primarily on pre and post season work in a role that is still evolving. Jean developed a recruitment brochure for volunteers and welcomes new Friends, connecting them with Team Leaders. She is working with the data base to make it more useful. She worked pre-season for Public Relations on projects like Chill with Will and the Free Previews. She says she finds the work and the staff at GRSF exciting, nurturing and creative and has never had a job that is so “fun, well defined, and positively affirming.”

Hire an Apprentice
On Monday July 9, four of the apprentices, Brittany, Donny, Nate and Ted, washed all of our windows. Seldom have we seen such efficiency and dedication. They were done so quickly that we had to wait a bit for lunch, which we had a bit later in our garden. We encourage everyone who needs a job done around their house to contact the Hire an Apprentice program. Ray and Carolyn Felton.
