Volunteers Needed for Grundy, Virginia This Weekend!

Dear Volunteers, We are once again looking for eyecare volunteers for Grundy,Virginia October 3 &4,2015. The area is absolutely beautiful to visit in October and you will love the people and the place.

If you have volunteered with RAM previously just log in a register for the Grundy clinic. If you have not volunteered before register as a volunteer and then as a separate task register for the Grundy Clinic . If you have any questions about registration please contact Oriane from RAM Inc. Orianeleake@ramusa.org 2, For out of state volunteers you will need to complete an out of state form, send in $10 to the Virginia Board or Optometry or Medicine, and have a sponsor form sent. This will need to be done by mid September. Contact Oriane Orianeleake@ramusa.org  so we can get this taken care of if needed. 3.
