Facebook and new carpooling resources

The Mount Rainier Volunteers have now joined Facebook! Sign in at and search for Rainier Volunteers to send me a friend request. You can also join the Mount Rainier Volunteers facebook group!

I'm new to facebook, so if any of you are experts with the service, please send me your suggestions about how to take full advantage of it.

In addition, I've "borrowed" a technique from the Washington Trails Association; any large group volunteer project that you sign up for now through our Eventbrite site will have the option of listing your carpooling preferences. Then all you need to do is watch the event page to see who else signs up, and contact anyone whose carpooling preferences match your own.

Remember, too, that carpooling can be arranged by becoming a member of our Rainier Volunteers Yahoo group. Just post your carpooling offer or request on the group calendar. This is especially helpful for long-term volunteers like Meadow Rovers.
