Committee of 300 Gathering Members for Grand Prix

March 16, 2010

Tomorrow (Wednesday) night the Committee of 300 will meet to get more organized for another year of volunteering at the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. Here’s the January 2010 Newsletter. Here’s a Long Beach Press-Telegram Committee 300 article.

Message from John Ridgely:
Hi Race Fans! As the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach is just around the corner (April 16th, 17th and 18th) we have our March General Meeting this Wednesday, March 17th at the Petroleum Club of Long Beach, 3636 Linden, Long Beach. This meeting is for our Members, guests, and our Credentialled Race Volunteers. Tammy Johnson, Ticketing manager from the GPALB will be there to tell us what to expect at the race. It is always interesting listening to Tammy outline what is expected of us during the race. Please bring your friends, family, neighbors and co-workers and let them find out about the opportunities available for volunteering to work race weekend. Networking starts at 5:15pm, and the meeting begins at 6:15pm. We have opportunity prizes, light food and birthday cake for all those attending to celebrate our March birthdays. Please join us!

Outdoor Volunteer Events

August 4, 2009

Letter I received from the National Wildlife Federation last week:

Join NWF and millions nationwide for the federal government’s United We Serve initiative dedicated to showcasing volunteer opportunities through September 11, 2009. One positive outcome of the economic downturn is a dramatic increase in volunteerism. During the week of August 3rd, United We Serve is highlighting projects related to Energy and the Environment.

Here’s how you can make a difference:

Pass on a love of nature – Support the Department of Interior’s United We Serve initiative to mentor a youth outdoors and pass on a love of nature. NWF offers several resources including:

NatureFind – Search by city, state, or zip code to access outdoor adventures nationwide, including activities and events, trails, regional parks, and more.

Wildlife Watch– Watch for animals and plants in your neighborhood and share sightings online to track the health of species. A fun and educational nature-watching program created for people of all ages.

Find a volunteer project near you – Visit United We Serve’s website to discover short and long-term volunteer opportunities in your community. Enter your zip code to get started.
Be part of the national volunteering movement for positive change!

P.S. Remember, you can make a difference by mentoring a child outdoors. Join NWF’s Be Out There campaign to encourage increased outdoor time for kids and families.
