    Hi Karen. I use a lot of the same resources that have been listed. But I also look through the newspaper in entertainment sections and the what's happening now sections. and there are some small local papers call the Advertiser and the Merchandiser in lots of towns across the U.S. They tell about what's going on in those small towns.

  2. Hi Gwendolyn. First, I would recommend going to a book store like Borders or Barnes and Noble and purchasing a book on resumes. The styles that are preferred change quite often.

  5. Good evening. I know it can be very frustrating if you feel that an employee is sitting around with nothing to do. You might, however, have a golden opportunity right under your nose. Where are the bottlenecks in your actiivty program? I mean, what are the things that slow you down or prevent you from having a fabulous activiy program as opposed to good program? Could your evening person help to open the bottlenecks? Can she go around during that time and sign people up for a trip? It will save time for day employees. Can your employee call entertainers for you? Or perhaps do research on t
