---This advertisement is going to appear on the volunteer kiosk. If anyone knows of anyone who knows his way around the computer and is interested in this type of volunteerism, please pass on the information. The amount of time that someone is able to give to this project is VERY negotiable. As in losing weight I feel that ''slow is better.'' We hope to grow the program in a way that takes root in someway. Please have interested parties contact the Volunteer Office as they are handling what officially must be done. Telephone number is (415 - 759 - 3333.) Ask for Jan or Cherrylyn.
