Call For Volunteers For Around Cape Ann Road Race


Hello Joey!

Tina Ketchopulous (Cape Ann Ambassador for Northeast Health Systems) suggested I contact you, as she knows I’m trying to rally as many volunteers as I can for our "Around Cape Ann" Road Race on Labor Day.  I’m thrilled to have discovered your blog, as I find it chock-full of great local information and flavor!

Is there some way that I can post the following plea?  Pretty please?

Thank you for considering, Joey!  I look forward to following your posts!
