Several high school students are hard at work planning the second annual Race for AFAC. In conjunction with that event, they have organized a fundraising event at Joe’s Pizza. It’s great pizza and a great cause. Also, please note that this is the last week to submit your nomination for the “Volunteer of the Year” awards to be presented at the Volunteer Appreciation Picnic in June.
