STEPH DEROSA: WEEKLY VOLCANO VOLUNTEER COLLABORATION >>>
The first official Weekly Volcano volunteer collaboration will be this Thursday, Aug. 7th, 2008, 6 p.m. at The Mandolin Cafe. Kids and family friendly. Come one, come all.
For those who wish to be in attendance, I'd like to discuss the needs of Tacoma and where some excellent hands-on, one day volunteer opportunities exist. I know there is a plethora, and if at all possible â€" it'd be great to nail down a tentative year-at-a-glance.
These don't have to be projects that EVERYONE attends, but it should give many folks many opportunities to pick from.
There will need to be a "manager" (for lack of a better term right now) at each volunteer event. If you feel passionate about a particular event â€" then it would be more than fantastic for you to head it up and be there to oversee the project. No one is the "boss" here â€" we're all in this together.
That being said, if you feel passionate about something â€" then SPEAK UP! Whether it's here on the Spew, in the Volcano forums, at a gathering, or emailing me â€" just do it. Start a new topic in the forums if you'd like. Now is your chance to get the Weekly Volcano behind your ideas. You can make these small changes in our community simply by raising your voice, and showing up at one of the volunteer events.
OK, I'm off my soapbox.
Love, Steph DeRosa
P.S. â€" Could someone please come up with a name for this volunteer project we are about to take on?
