Featured Member of the Month - Larry Graham

If you visited or volunteered at The Courtyard at the OC Fair this past summer, you likely interacted with OCWS member Larry Graham.

In addition to the scheduling, each volunteer has different tasks they are trained to do, or training that needs to be coordinated.

Larry has patiently and meticulously handled this overwhelming task with humility, grace, and a smile.  [read more]
