Annual Volunteer Breakfast is next week!

If the presentation is boring, you can
step outside and enjoy the view!

From Amy Mann at the Tacoma Mountaineers:

The Tacoma Branch Hiking/Backpacking Committee invites you to join Mount Rainier National Park staff at the park's Community Building at Longmire at 10:00 a.m. on May 5, 2012 for our annual spring brunch!

This event is a great way to kick off the volunteer season for 2012. Meet old friends, make new ones, and most important, learn about everything that's going on at Mount Rainier and its volunteer program. If you've been a volunteer before, come learn what's new. If you've never volunteered, come learn about the many opportunities available for people of all ages and interests.

The annual volunteer brunch is usually sponsored by the Meadow Rover program and held at the Tacoma Mountaineers Clubhouse. However, the building is being remodeled this year, so this time we're holding the event in the park itself.

Volunteers (and potential volunteers) who attend this event will be granted free admission to the park. Please RSVP to so that we can give a list of names to the rangers at the entrance station.

The brunch is "potluck," so please bring a dish to share. We'll gather at 10:00, eat at 10:30, and have a short presentation at 11:00 about park news and our plans for the upcoming super season. All are welcome! After the program, stick around to chat with the rangers and other volunteers, or spend the day in the park.

The Community Building is located across the historic suspension bridge from Longmire.
