Veteran's Annual Celebration of Independence Day

Hi incredible volunteers, I'm excited to partner with the Veteran's Center in Long Beach for the 3rd and 4th of July. I have reserved 60 spots for Meetup volunteers out of the 300 spots needed for those two days. Please sign up soon as possible as I believe this volunteer effort will fill up quickly. When you RSVP, please send me a personal note or note in the comment section your TSHIRT size as each volunteer will receive a Veteran's Independence Day shirt. For now, I do not have much information on exact times but I imagine it'll be shifts of 4 hours each and they will send volunteers to task as needed (food center, operations, entertainment etc). https://www.facebook.com/VeteransIndependenceDayCelebration

      Hi! I was there on Thursday as I indicated. While I enjoyed my first Meet Up event, it was unclear to me who among the people there were from this group as no introductions were made, there were no name tags by which to identify the volunteers, etc. I stood there on the side when group photos were being taken. Are there SOPs I should know about, separate from the instructions posted here and emailed to each participant? Was I supposed to have waited for the Meet Up people to come before accepting the assignment I was given? Was I supposed to have been somewhere at a certain time to be included in the group photo?! Again this was my first event and felt excluded! I was there even though across my name I don't have the stock comment, "Good to see you."

      I'm so sorry you felt/were excluded! I know it wasn't on purpose. I'm sorry I did not meet you. I was there Thursday morning. This was my first Meet Up too. The event was great! I could have done a better job meeting more people. Thank you for your heart Christina to volunteer to help and serve people. I hope to meet you at another event. I know the group, especially the Veterans, appreciate your hard work and willingness to serve. Thank you for reaching out and being honest about how it went for you. Take care, Laura Pollard
