Can You Volunteer, Apollos?

Oh my..are they going to go? Will they sign up?

It is not too late. We need a few speakers to jump in to our outreach. It is a meaningful way to use our skills and it is happening tomorrow.

I am now humbly begging someone to join the Palmer kids at our speech outreach opportunity tomorrow. I would hate to only have one family represent our fantastic club! I can help with rides as needed. Any type of speech can be presented.

Please join the Palmer kids at Monticello Senior Living Community (5114 McKinney Avenue · Dallas, TX 75205) to share your talents and hard work by presenting a speech for the residents to enjoy. Their activity director is a former NCFCA parent and has gotten the residents excited about hearing your amazing speeches!

We have time for 5 speeches on Tuesday April 9 from 2:00-3:00. I can help with rides for up to 3 kids if needed as long as I know in advance. 

Let me know if you are available and what type of speech you would like to present. This will truly be a blessing to the residents!
