One thought on “Current Volunteer Opportunities

  1. I always like to speak to groups about their heart health. Having done these speaking engagements now for the last couple years I believe that my presentations get even better each time I speak. With so few passed-on speaking engagements, a better job appears to be needed to get the word out about this FREE PUBLIC SERVICE! Christ’s Peace, KGB
