4. We had a number of last-minute cancellations, so we are very light on volunteers this evening. If you are able to pitch in for even part of the evening, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Allison Carroll, (allison@harvestastoria.com) or Mumon Akiyama, who will be leading the volunteer shift tonight (mumon@harvestastoria.com). As a general note for all members - we understand that you may need to cancel a volunteer shift on occasion, but please give us as much notice as possible so that we can find another member to replace you. The CSA is entirely run by volunteers and we count on all members to contribute over the course of the season.
