We are excited to announce that we will be offering Volunteer Orientations, Volunteer Shop and Mellow Vélo on weekends starting October 3rd.
Registration is now required for all WRENCH activities, as we are restricting the number of people in the shop at one time. Please email Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for any weekend programming.
Please note that some of the time-slots have changed from what they once were (Volunteer Shop is now most Saturdays from 3-5pm, Volunteer Orientations are on the first Saturday of the month, either 1-2:30 or 3-4:30 depending on the month, and Mellow Vélo is bi-weekly on Sundays from 2-5pm).
For specific information about each program and when exactly they will be offered, please check out our website Calendar.
