LWV to Answer Phones for UNC-TV. LWVODC has volunteered to answer phones for the UNCTV SummerFest fundraiser. It's a great opportunity to support UNCTV and to introduce the larger community to LWVODC. Training for answering the phones will be provided, so don't worry if you've never done this before. It will be a great time to meet other LWVODC members--between training, phone calls and enjoying the food provided for volunteers!

To volunteer, contact Jean Baber no later than August 5th. Jean can answer any questions you may have.
