The work would be a clean-up project pulling staples, rolling wire and removing post remains. Clients will supply work supervision and equipment. MDS will supply meals and lodging. Volunteers will need claw hammers, sturdy gloves and sleeping bags. If you or your youth group is interested in serving, please contact Glen Kauffman (780-712-9064 or glenmdsab@gmail.com ) by June 15. Please indicate the expected number of volunteers, the preferred number of days during that week you wish to work, and if you have a preference for the location (Empress or Hilda). Final details will be supplied after June 15.
