Volunteer Work

Volunteering at MFS has been a long and valuable tradition. We are developing this page to honor those who have helped us in many ways and are digging through our records and photos trying to identify you all. If we missed you please let us know. If you are listed here and have additional photos you want to include please send them to us.
