Looking for (another) way to Volunteer?
Some of you may have met our member Tessa Eckholm (RPCV Mexico). She is looking for some folks to help out on a Habitat for Humanity build. Habitat for Humanity is celebrating National Women Build Week May 4th – 11th. They are looking for 5-10 volunteers (open to everyone, not just women) for Saturday May 10th at the Sheridan Hollow Project site. Building will take place from 8am-3pm and they are having an after party at the Habitat for Humanity offices, just up the street at 3:30 as a thank you for all the Women Build volunteers.
If you are interested in participating or have any questions please email Tessa directly: email@example.com. For planning purposes it would helpful if you could RSVP to Tessa by Thursday May 1st.
Here is some information about Women Build Week:
Happy Hour - Friday, August 22nd – The City Beer Hall in Downtown Albany
Hi Everyone,We are holding another Happy Hour on Friday, August 22nd at 6PM. This time we will be at the City Beer Hall (42 Howard Street, Albany). Please feel free to bring your family, friends or anyone else who would like to join us. We have reserved area on the back patio, so when you arrive just head out back (go past the bar, take a right then take a left before you get to the kitchen on the first floor).
The Beer Hall has excellent local beers on tap and each beer comes with a free pizza. (They also have wine and spirits). If pizza is not your thing, their menu is quite good too. You can check out their website for more information: http://thecitybeerhall.com/about-us/
Sarah J set up a Facebook Event for us (and to share with others who might be interested in attending). Please let us know if you are able to make it (just so we can make sure we have enough tables reserved at the Beer Hall). You can either e-mail me (address below) or on the Facebook event page.
See you there!
