Dear Capitola Patch, Thanx for the mention! I am honored to have been recognized for my work in Community Partnerships by the local chapter of the American Red Cross. It has been wonderful working with the other volunteers here at home and across the country. The Red Cross needs a lot of volunteers of all skills and interests. If you have some time to spare and enjoy helping people, contact your local Red Cross chapter to find out about the many opportunities available. ~AM
