It’s Popcorn Sorting and Distribution Time again!

Before popcorn can be picked up by the units and Show N Sells can begin, a group of volunteers sort and palletize each unit’s orders.  We are calling out to all units for volunteers.  Since Milton and Chattahoochee Districts have merged, there are more units and thus more popcorn.  And you got it!  We need more volunteers.  We are looking for 36 willing and able volunteers to help us pull the orders together:
Date:  Thurs 9/11/14
Time:  1:00 – 3:30pm
Place: 8250 Dunwoody Place, Atlanta, GA 30350

Please encourage your units to send volunteers.  It doesn’t just have to be the kernel who volunteers :-)
