February 18th and 19th the FSU PeaceJam scholars are here for their winter retreat. They will have training's in the morning in the Bay High Cafe and then launch and volunteer options. Dinner and party Saturday night will be held at Chautauqua. They will be sleeping in Chautauqua's portables as they refuel for the next day's activities. Donated food items are appreciated as we feed these young people for the weekend. Please call Mary Beth Nutt at 785-5056 for suggestions or more specific needs. Most of all though, we need volunteers to come to school Saturday afternoon. As we have the new portable moved in, we will be moving things from P#2 to the new portable, as well as beginning our Best Neighbors Grant Project "Bucket Gardens".
