Earthday Festival - just attend OR volunteer!

Earthday is coming up soon. This one day festival is always the biggest or second biggest festival of its type in the nation drawing in thousands to Forest Park. There is a lot to see and do. Shows, music, food, crafts, booths, you name it. The festival is in front of and all around the Muny in Forest Park which makes it more appealing to go. This is your invitation to see it all.

In addition, you can be part of the Earthday festival by volunteering to help out for a few hours in many different areas. This will be my 4th or 5th time to work it and Charlotte’s 3rd. We look forward to seeing everything AND volunteering. You can find out more about volunteering and sign up at . If you just want to attend you can check out more about it at the same site without the extensions. Call me if you have questions and please still rsvp on this Meetup site to let me know who is going. Volunteers get a t-shirt and fed for their help.

They also have a big recycling drive going on in conjunction with the festival. Let me know if you want more info on it.

Finally, it would seem like parking would be a problem. While they do suggest public transportation which goes along with the cause, there are parking lots with shuttles and plenty of street and lot parking. They even have valets to park your bike which is also one of the things you can volunteer for. Or you can post to the group if you want to carpool.

Hope to see you there. I always have people saying they want to volunteer. This is a good one to do.

    Rizvi. Unfortunately you had just signed up to be a member and was basically leaving to go to the festival at the same time. Therefore you missed e-mails I sent out about Earthday. While a few dropped out for fear of weather, some of us were there but were already working as volunteers or wandering. Please know that no one was avoiding you and would have liked to met up. It is very difficult to do by sending e-mails after something that size has already started. I hope to see you soon. I keep members well informed if they take time to read my messages. My cell number is[masked]-3211. I post it often. You may want to keep it on your phone for situations like yesterday.

    Sorry the delay in getting back to you. Sign up as an individual. The group sign up would be great but it is meant more for groups that all want to do the same thing at the same time. Jeanette, who runs Earthday is a member of the Cobra's so she knows the deal. I like to leave it open to accommodate your time and volunteering with what interests you. We will find a time to meetup while there.

    In reading the info on volunteering, it asked if doing it as an individual, or a group. Are we doing the volunteering as a group, or should I put that I will volunteer as an individual? Or do you want to wait and see if more people sign up?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
