Empty bowls needs volunteers
Potters are needed for the Feb. 18, 2013, Empty Bowls fundraiser. No experience is required. Potters will need to travel to Arley on Mondays and Fridays. They meet to carpool about 8 a.m. and drive to Meek High School, which takes about 50 minutes. Potters will then work until 11:30 to noon and break for lunch, then work until 3 p.m., returning to Cullman about 4 p.m.
To volunteer, or for more information, contact Lynn Jetton at 256-796-5006 or 256-620-3120 or at email@example.com.
