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 11th and 12th (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:

**Sun (1/12), 9 am to 530 pm

[for Sat (1/11), see the separate meetup calendar notice on Jan 11]

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!!

    Thanks to everyone who has volunteered! You should all have heard from me by this point. If you haven't replied, please do! Thanks again. I'm still looking for 6 people to help with Sunday morning, so I've you've been thinking about RSVPing but haven't yet, now is the time. Happy holidays, everyone!

      Ah, I have a previous commitment for the afternoon, I'm only free in the morning. It's too bad that I just found out about this; sounds cool. Good luck with the booth!
