Join us for the annual Volunteer Recognition Picnic and Shadows of the Past!

Hard as it is to believe, it's already the 4th of August, and our annual Volunteer Recognition Picnic is fast approaching! Please consider joining us on August 15 for lasagna, potluck, awards, photos, stories, friends, and history!

Yes, history: once again, this year's Volunteer Recognition Picnic is on the same day as our popular Shadows of the Past program, in which characters from the history of Mount Rainier come to life along the Trail of the Shadows. Volunteers are needed to help carry lanterns for the program (contact Nick Abel at Nicholas_Abel@partner.nps.gov), but you can also just show up at dusk to enjoy the program as a member of the audience.

Here are the details of our Recognition Picnic:

When: 4:00 p.m. Saturday August 15, 2009

Where: Longmire Community Building (across the Nisqually suspension bridge from Longmire, on the edge of the Longmire Campground)

RSVP: Kevin Bacher, Kevin_Bacher@nps.gov

Bring: Side dishes, salads, and deserts to share. We will provide meat and vegetarian lasagna, a variety of drinks, and table service.

This is a great opportunity to learn what's been happening with the volunteer program, to learn about new volunteer opportunities, and to meet other volunteers. We hope to see you there!
