I took advantage of the fact that the template viewed on the webpage is
in a highlighted block. In addition to adding some text, I also trimmed a
little.  I wanted to remove the volunteer paragraph.. do we really need that
on both pages?
Based on the postings recently, people who make it to this page have
little trouble finding the template but needed some help with filling it
Hopefully, the  changes will help there and save some rework.
