    Hi there! I am a volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation. I am looking for ways to communicate with citizens the many things that the arthritis foundation has to offer the community.. Would this event be something I could participate in? I tried emailing Jeff Hocker but it said invalid address.
    Thank you
