I would like to meet with the Recreation Director, when are her hours?

In general my office hours are from 8:00am-3:30pm Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Currently I am working half days on Friday. I will always try to accommodate if I can because there is some flexibility with my schedule. Know that making an appointment if possible is the best bet, because I do some local travel from time to time.
