REMINDER: Work Party Tomorrow!

Just a quick reminder that there is a work party scheduled for tomorrow, which will begin shortly after 10am and continue until just before choir practice at 4pm - or until we have the whole house cleaned up, whichever comes first! ;-) This work party's main focus will be on rearranging the kitchen to make it more functional and to accommodate the larger refrigerator we are obtaining.
