Each fall, our rowers rake leaves and perform other, similar household tasks (which will not involve power tools, ladders, or any other hazardous elements) for people in our community. The fundraiser will take place November 9This year, we have scheduled both a morning and afternoon session in hopes of maximizing potential jobs.

We are asking each rower to sign up for at least one job (am or pm on Sunday). However, rowers are strongly encouraged to do two. There will be breakfast and lunch provided before the rowers depart for each job.
