Thank you volunteer Potlatch teams!

Thank you to these amazing teams who helped before, during, and after (some to the bitter end) Potlatch 2017 to make it a success! We could not put on this event without your help. We are so grateful to know all of you. Also, thank you to the teams who volunteered to do some extra clean up even though they weren't tasked with it!
