Assistant needed for Barbara and Eli

Do you know anyone who would be interested in a part-time position as a home assistant to us?  Our primary assistant for the past year and a half is moving from the area in June.  She has helped us for 15 hours a week. There have also been two other helpers, who worked a total of five more hours weekly and who are also leaving the area in May because of college graduation. 

   I have included a job description below this note to you.  If you know of anyone who might be interested in this position or portions of it, please pass along the information to them.  They can then contact me so that I can discuss more details with them by email or phone.  Or, if you have more questions, please contact me.

   Thank you very much for any help you can provide!
