2 Importance of Showing Up Please remember that when you sign up for any service events that it is important that you attend. Please check the website under upcoming events to make sure you are still able to attend the service events you previously signed up for, if you are unable to attend please e-mail ASAP and let me know.

3 Results of not showing up… Starting now, for any future service events that you sign up for and do not show up to without calling me or e-mailing me with an excuse (prior to the event) then you will no longer be able to participate in anymore of the future service events.
