Excellent Employment Opportunity!

We received a note from Lila MacIsaac-Buchanan, from Notre Dame Place in Summerside, regarding their need for volunteers who might be interested in helping out with their tutoring program.   They currently have three volunteers, but they have a list of at least 8-10 people who have an interest in being tutored.     This would be a 2-3 hour per week commitment.   If you think you are able to help out, please give Lila a call at 902 888 2237.

I mentioned this before, but wanted to put in a reminder and an invitation:   
The YMCA of Summerside is looking into a potential project for the Summerside area, but first they would like to get some feedback about how people would view the idea. I am posting a link to their online survey so that you can fill it out for them. They could really use some help to find out how the community feels. Thanks. Gloria        

 Here is the link:

And here is the invitation:     If you would like to drop by our EPSI office, I have the hard copy survey that you can fill out and we will fax it for you.    OR you can use one of our laptops to fill in your responses.    We'd be happy to set it up for you.    So stop in anytime!
