Hi.

Would anyone want to attend this event and help host?

Hosting isn't hard.

It involves being a point of contact in case others sign up and want to meet & volunteer together.

If your plans/availability change, and you can't attend anymore, that's fine, just let us know and maybe someone else can step up to host, but if not, it's okay and we can cancel this meetup.

Attention:

To help me save time, this is automatically posted in this group, but they only meet on even-numbered months, excluding December.

So February, April, June, August, and October.

If this is posted in January, March, May, July, September, or December, then ignore this event. I need to delete it.

They only meet one Friday a month in February, April, June, August, and October.

I try to spread the word about volunteer opportunities and raise awareness about non-profits/charities that do good work.

This event is from the City of Fountain Valley.

This community dance is for adults with disabilities.

This might not be a typical volunteer event that "needs" many volunteers, but they welcome visitors to support and join them by dancing, talking/socializing with the guests, and a few help with serving snacks/drinks.

No need or expectation to be a good dancer. Nobody should feel nervous, embarrassed, or worried about being judged for a lack rhythm and dance skills. haha

Being friendly, outgoing, and social are recommended. And being open and comfortable to interact & socialize with new people is helpful.

Oh, and no need to have a dance partner per se. Some music/songs are conducive to group dancing where you can dance with whoever is standing around you. A few songs might be fun with a partner, so feel free to mingle and find someone friendly to dance with.

On Brookhurst St, either turn on Heil Ave (you should see several outdoor basketball courts) or if driving north on Brookhurst, look for a small driveway entrance (north of the Rec Center) next to some tennis courts.

When you arrive, ask for Nora Webb or Jan Werts.

They can provide further instructions on how to help.
