  1. Hey there, my name is Cameron and I work for an apartment complex in downtown Bellevue. Our company does volunteer events once a quarter, and I thought this one sounded like a winner, as we have helped with restoration projects once a year for the last three years. I was hoping I might be able to get in touch with someone to help organize times for the Ivy pulling going on the last Saturday in April or possibly May.

    Please respond as soon as possible, as I want to submit this idea as soon as I can!
    Thanks team,
    Cameron
