Re: [hreg] Volunteerism
- I will have to check with my boss to see if they will have a shift on Monday. If
there is no shift on Monday, then everyone will be scheduled to work on Tuesday,
Wednesday, and Thursday of that week. If they will have a shift on Labor Day and
I work that day, I can ask for September 3rd off. I assume we are talking about
working in the evenings? As for the Roundup, my mother is scheduled to go in for
surgery on the 23rd and I will start at the Texas Renaissance Festival on the
28th, so it will not be possible for me take off from the 20-22.
