What we're about
Upcoming events (5+)
Volunteered with us before? Time to celebrate you! Never volunteered? Come hear about this year's upcoming events (& stories of past events)! This is NOT a volunteering event; it is simply a fun celebration (GIANT games, drinks, food..) & hopefully an informative gathering! :) Why does our monthly volunteering exist? :) 1. Folks don't want to do it alone; it might be boring.. or intimidating? - Our volunteering group brings fun, good people together. I swear we're super (duper) cool. Also, everything you need to know is either on the event description or will be explained upon arrival! 2. Many orgs require commitment or monetary donation. - Our events NEVER require more than a day's commitment (never even an orientation a few days prior!), & will NEVER require a monetary donation. 3. It's difficult to initiate! - Not everyone feels passionately about/wants to invest time in every type of cause; that's perfectly fine! I've sought out different organizations that fit our requirements, just for you! You are bound to find one of them to be fitting for you, personally! How are volunteer orgs/events chosen? 1. No more than a day's commitment (orientation or otherwise). 2. No monetary donation required (even small amounts). 3. About 15 spots of availability. 4. Different from past events.* 5. If they are religious based, they must (very directly, upon direct questioning) communicate that they will be open & respect any & all other forms of belief that our volunteer Meetup members hold, just as we will respect their own. *The events will finally start repeating (beginning now! :) ), to make it easier on myself, but don't worry! We still have 12+ different events over the next year! :) I hope this helped answer some questions! Hope to see you at our little celebration to discuss what is planned for the upcoming year! :)
Grab some food to share and join us for a special potluck dinner at The American Legion Post 1. Some of us will have to spend time with our families on Friendsgiving, so we'll be celebrating a week early with the people we really want to. Some suggestions on food items to bring: Initial of last name is A-I: Main course Initial of last name is J-R: Side dish Initial of last name is S-Z: Dessert NO DRINKS OR ALCOHOL. We will have our own bartender, drinks are cheap and all proceeds go towards our military veterans. Bring pre-prepared food only. Bring any indoor games you may want to play. This will be taking the place of our usual Thursday Dinner event. About The American Legion: Since its founding in 1919, the 2.7 million-member American Legion is the nation's preeminent service organization for veterans of the U.S. armed forces, including active duty, National Guard and Reserves, and their families. A powerful voice for veterans in Washington, The American Legion drafted the original GI Bill and was instrumental in establishing the agency that today is the federal Department of Veterans Affairs.
