        behind the hospital volunteers and Trinity Episcopal.

        Four years ago I was in charge of the whole shebang. I made a few changes that were bitterly unpopular until proven successful. The floor plan hasn't changed since and we have had four record years in a row.

        Rain will put the kibosh on that.

        I have no official role this year but people tend to trust my opinion on Spring Sale matters. My practical role this year is to oversee the receiving process. Keeping the trash out is really critical and the booth volunteers are loathe to discard anything.
