Gratitude and information

Hi everyone.


First of all, I want to let you know how surprised....no, overwhelmed with gratitude and amazement at the response to the volunteer activities! Your participation leaves me with such a renewed sense of the goodness inside of people.

I was trying to keep this group low key until I finished my degree next month but opportunities have been dropping in my lap that I could not ignore. The Food Bank loves us so much that they have shut down the facility to all other volunteers on OUR night! They have us booked until December and I will try to get those dates up soon. I have some other "relationships" in the works and also welcome you to suggest opportunities, especially those that do not require people to commit to more than the one event/day. Several members are helping me work out one or more trips to Scoharie County to help out people still in need from hurricane Irene. If you know of a group or a family, let me know. Benefit announcements for any cause are also welcome...those would be great chances for us to meet up for a great cause and also to get to know each other more personally.


I would also like to ask those that can and feel comfortable with it, to pay the suggested dues to our meetup site. This will greatly help with the approximate $150 annual fee that meetup charges organizers like myself to keep the site up. Again, it is not mandatory and will not affect your status in any way. You can pay by paypal online or directly to my home address.


Again, THANK-YOU so much for your enthusiasm, hard work and generous hearts and hands! I look forward to meeting you all!
