VSDC Booth @ NBC4 Health Expo

 

VSDC will have a booth at the annual NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo to do outreach on vegan diets and their connection to great health.  The event will be held on the weekend of Jan 11 & 12 (9am - 5pm) at the Washington Convention Center. The educational and fun-filled event will include free health tests, screenings, food and other demonstrations, and fun activities. For more details about the overall event, see http://www.networkevents.tv/EventDetails.aspx?id=118

This is one of VSDC's most exciting tabling events where we can reach many thousands of people. VSDC volunteers hand out literature, answer questions, sell books, and present a positive image. No specific skills or knowledge are required.

We need many volunteers to assist us each day for 2 or 3 hour time slots:

**Sat (1/11), 830 am to 5 pm

[for Sun (1/12), 9 am to 530 pm, see the separate meetup calendar notice for that date]

Please volunteer your time by rsvp'ing ASAP.  As you RSVP, you will be prompted for your name, contact info, and the time you prefer to volunteer. This info will not be seen by others so please do include it.  More details / info will be emailed to you about a week before the event.

THANKS for volunteering!!

    I think I'd like to come on Sunday, January 12th to the Convention Center. I'll have my daughter with me, and I am sure we will have a great time. Will there be another post forthcoming for the 12th?

      Hi Carol! Are you interested in volunteering to help staff the VSDC booth, or just attending the event? These meetups are for coordinating volunteers. I'd love to have your help, and your daughter would be welcome as well. The post for the 12th is here: http://www.meetup.com...­ I have a few morning volunteer shifts on the 12th.
