Laura, thanks so much for putting this list together! I’m going to include it in a list of fun free things for AmeriCorps members to do this summer!


frugalfriends June 21, 2010 at 1:13 pm

No problem Michael! Glad that my list has helped you compile some fun free summer activities for your local AmeriCorps members. On a side note, one of my best friends from high school joined AmeriCorps after college and actually ended up meeting her future husband through it. It’s a small world!

Wow! Thanks for the list of free movies. This will be very help for the coming weeks!
