Single Volunteer - Weekly Events [masked]

From: Single V.
Sent on: Thursday, July 22, 2010 12:33 PM

Hi Everyone ? We had so much fun at the last meeting! Several people wore their favorite T-Shirt (from a previous volunteer event) and lots of stories were told about the events?.. because there is always a `good' story. We had a nice turnout and many of us went next door after the meeting, to the Moosehead restaurant, to sit on the patio before the rain came.

Financial Update: I wanted to give you all a mid-year update of expenses: We have donated over $945 this year ? which is amazing. We have made $957 from our fundraisers, garage sale, and 50/50 raffles. We have spent about $700 on operating expenses (name tags, business cards, pizza, pop, website, etc.). And can you believe we've done all of this without charging our members dues!!! We thank you for bringing snacks to the meeting, buying raffle tickets and for all the support you give us all year long ? it helps us keep our expenses down. We have 2 important fundraisers coming up soon ? please help us if you can (Aug 20th is our Happy Hour Fundraiser for St Augustine Hunger Center and over Labor Day we'll probably work once again at the Oktoberfest in Berea).

Our next meeting/social is August 21 ? It's our annual summer picnic. We could use a few more events for our September calendar! Call any Officer and we will help you with your event. All events need to be submitted before August 15 please. All events can be found at:


BOOKS AND ORNAMENTS: Lend a Hand Food Pantry is looking for gently used children's books. Strongsville Food Bank is looking for volunteers to make Christmas ornaments ? Contact Sheryl for details: [address removed]

VOLUNTEER: We need a point of contact for the Color Me Cleveland event on either Aug 7 or 8. (you pick the date). You will be assisting artists in locations around Cleveland (at landmarks).

Let me know ASAP if you are interested in being the point of contact. Contact Mary Ellen [address removed] or[masked]
