Kitty,  you are so right about that!  Those who sign up for too much are just 
as bad as those people who never involve anybody else in their projects.  
When I was president of our local garden club I appointed committee chairmen to 
coordinate efforts meant to involve everybody in the club.  The park chairman, 
a former club president, never scheduled any work days, and did the work 
herself with the help of her close, personal friends.  As a result many members 
lost interest because they felt it was her project and not that of the club.  The 
horticulturist at the experiment station just sends out requests for MG help, 
and we reply directly to him about when we can help.  That has worked out 
great for me.  I would rather drive 50 miles one way to help somebody who 
appreciates my donated time than to walk one block to our town park only to be made 
to feel like an outsider.
