Would you recommend National Cherry Festival?

by Sharon P. from Traverse City, MI (Administrator for this Organization) (2009-06-23 17:36:12.0)
It's fun! There are lots of things you can sign up for and you work with great people. The staff really made me feel appreciated.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
