Student Job Opportunity
The McIntosh family (friends of Sandra Thiessen) is looking for childcare from April 23 - May 10.  They have two different times of the day they need help:
  • 7:30-11:30 a.m. for their 5 year old girl
  • 4-5:30 p.m. for all three (5 and 10 year old girls, 11 year old boy; starting at 3 p.m. on Thursdays)
Their preference is a trade for room/board but they could manage to pay if that was the best option.  For more information email Sandra.
