Montana Volunteers Rock! – Excerpts from Extension

Stop me before i volunteer again!!

If I’m not working, riding my horse, or playing with my dog, I’m usually volunteering somewhere.   Walking dogs at Heart of the Valley, raising money for The National MS Society, teaching first aid classes for the Red Cross... Volunteering is just something that has always been a part of my life.

Apparently there are other people that feel the same way.

How To File an Extension For Your 2010 Taxes
