Two days ago, Barrels had a nice get together as volunteers. Nearly all of the volunteers came and helped prepare dinner. They ate at Barrels along with the store’s two owners, Gene and Melissa. Program Leader Seth Bulter, who organized the event, called it a “huge success.” Seth said, “We got almost all volunteers, had some delicious food, and I felt like everyone really bonded/got to know each other well.”
