Hi everyone,

1. Upcoming events


The San Francisco Food Bank needs volunteers - so we've arranged a
number of shifts over the next few weeks:
Friday 4/2: http://www.meetup.com/GetVolunteering/calendar/12990121/
Thursday 4/8: http://www.meetup.com/GetVolunteering/calendar/12990283/
Monday 4/12: http://www.meetup.com/GetVolunteering/calendar/13030395/

Please join us!

Thanks to Megan for hosting the first two events and Edna for booking the dates.


2. Ideas for new events


There have been a number of suggestions for volunteer events - thanks!

I did post to the message board about Habitat for Humanity:
http://www.meetup.com/GetVolunteering/messages/boards/
but it doesn't look like people are actively checking the message
boards. (And the "idea" feature doesn't include an option for
further discussion.)

I'm not sure how best to handle idea discussion using Meetup. I want
to provide you with the ability to suggest and discuss ideas, but at
the same time, minimize the amount of email generated.

So for the moment, let's do the following. Please post your ideas
via the Idea link on the group page. That way we can determine how
many people are interested. Also, please create a post under the
message board section (link above) so everyone can take part in
subsequent discussion.

We'll see how this works and make adjustments as required.


3. Logo wanted


It would be great to have a logo for this group, so we don't appear as
"? No photo yet"! And also, I would like to make some flyers and
business cards to help promote us.

Sadly, my skills don't extend to graphic design. So if you or someone
you know could help to design a logo, please let me know.



Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Regards,
Daniel.
