Opportunity Knocks - April 30th, 2014

It's been a little bit since my last opportunity knocks.  Things have been a little nutty in my world, and rather than send out the same postings I thought I'd give your eyeballs a break.  

Here we are with a brand new compliment of opportunities for you to pitch in, in your community! 

Do you have an opportunity that you'd like to share? Please send it to me at

Thanks in advance!
