Poster mailing party confirmed for February 16

Thank you to all of you who have contacted me over the past few weeks to confirm your mailing address for our commemorative poster, recognizing the efforts of those who participated as volunteers over the past year! We are tidying up a few loose ends on our mailing list and awaiting our order of poster tubes, but are otherwise ready to begin putting the posters in the mail. With about 1400 addresses to send them to, however, we will clearly need some assistance, mostly rolling posters and putting them in the poster tubes.

So, please consider joining us for a poster mailing party! This will be a great opportunity to see your friends and fellow volunteers, and to make new friends with others who have participated at Mount Rainier National Park... and, of course, to get some work done at the same time. Here are the details:

WHO: Everyone is welcome. If you didn't volunteer last summer, come join us, learn about the volunteer program, and earn a poster for your efforts!

WHERE: Mount Rainier National Park Education Center: 55210 238th Ave E, Ashford, WA 98304 ("Tahoma Woods"; click the link for directions). To reach the Education Center, drive straight back, past the park headquarters building, through the gate, then curve left at the clearing to park by the Education Center. If it's very snowy, you can also park at park headquarters and walk 200 yards to the Education Center.

WHEN: 11:00 a.m. Saturday, February 16, until 5pm or we finish, whichever comes first! Late arrivals are fine if you can't come for the whole day.

BRING: Bring your own sack lunch (microwaves are available), and a snack or desert to share.

TAKE HOME: Your own Mount Rainier Recovery commemorative poster! See our earlier entry for details.

RSVP: Please let me know if you plan to come, so I have some idea of how large a group to expect. But drop-ins are also welcome!

QUESTIONS: If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me, or call me at 360-569-2211 ext. 3385.

See you in a few weeks!
