Cherry Blossom Festival Preparation -- Volunteers Needed

The Cherry Blossom organizers are soliciting for more assistance next week in preparation for the festival. They have asked Judo and Aikido specifically for help with setting up the outside stage on Friday.  If you have the time, please show up from 4-5pm Friady 6/27 at the main gate entrance to help with stage set up.
Also, we are are going to start our summer hours beginning Mon 6/23 and hold practice until 8:30pm.  We will use the extra 1/2 hour next week to work on our Judo performance.  I am crossing my fingers that the gym won't be occupied with preppers and that we can hold practice as normal.
