Re: self-sowers NOW Volunteerism


Then sometimes, I think we should be grateful for any time given, since it
is volunteer, after all.  I suppose you have to weight the pros and cons and
I suppose this woman gives as much or maybe more to the group to balance the
difficulties she raises.

The situation you mention is not right.  It's not a matter of someone not
doing their share or being difficult to get along with.  This  could easily
cause the group to lose people you need down the line.
