This week’s Service Spotlight is on Carrie Marusich! Carrie has been a regular OpOliver volunteer for months, having attended nearly every Sunday Farm Stand and Semper Friday since early May. Carrie’s weapon of choice on Semper Fridays has been the lawnmower; she has made it her mission to keep the grass on Bethel St. down for the neighborhood kids to play on. As an 8th-grade science teacher with Howard County, she’ll be on sabbatical from Semper Fridays for the next 10 months or so, but hopefully we’ll continue to see her at the occasional Farm Stand moving forward. Thank you for your service, Carrie!
