As the season nears, we are going to get the gang back together!

Please come to Lightening Will (305 NW 21st Ave) on Sunday, March 19th from 4-6pm for some snacks and drinks as we discuss ways to get more people involved in Rose City Riveters activities!

Please RSVP via Facebook or leave a comment on this post so we have a general headcount to give our gracious host!

We have different areas where we are looking for more volunteers, some require experience and others do not. We want to share those opportunities with everyone during the first part of the get-together, so please plan on being prompt! We will also have time for a Q&A in case you have any questions or ideas for the upcoming season of activities.

If you cannot make it and still want to volunteer to help us during the 2017 season, you can find sign-up sheets here: https://timbersarmy.org/Blog/4613803 .

See you soon!
