Happy Spring: Our meeting for April has been cancelled, but Melissa is still looking for a few more volunteers for the Drug Take Back on Saturday April 27, 2019. She has room in either shift. Email her if you can volutneer. Looking ahead to the summer, CERT will participate in the Safety and Ice Cream Social again this year on June 8th. Keep that day open to volunteer. Finally, we will be conducting the next round of background checks soon. We suggest everyone get a new one unless you have gotten one in the last year.
