SVGD Volunteers: 
      I've just put the Clothing Donation Sorting event on the web site so you can now register.  We will be helping on October 19th.
      We still need two volunteers to help this upcoming Saturday at the Pumpkin Fest at Chatfield.  Please sign up soon if you'd like to help.  Do you need a pumpkin?
      Also, the Event Captain Dinner meeting is coming up a week from Wednesday.  I need to get the menus to the attendees so also sign up as soon as you can for this one.  We'd love to have some new Event Captains!  You don't have to plan any of the events and only sign up for events when you are available.  Please email me if you 'd like to discuss this opportunity.
       Thanks so much for your help in the non-profit community!

Pumpkin Fest benefiting Denver Botanic Gardens, Sat. Oct 12th, 12-6PM(WE STILL NEED 2 VOLUNTEERS TO HELP THIS UPCOMING SATURDAY!) 6 Volunteers in total will be helping. We have helped at this event several times and always enjoy the experience.  They usually give us each a free pumpkin in appreciation for helping which helps us get our homes in the Halloween or Thanksgiving spirit.  The event is held at Chatfield Farms.  We've helped before in areas such as with the people entering the Festival, at the check out lines, etc.  It's a lot of fun with a lot of happy people while helping the Gardens.

 Event Captain Dinner Meeting, Wed., Oct. 16th!!, 6:30-8PM.  We used to do these annually but haven't had one for the past few years. We are expecting all Event Captains and Board members to attend. Many of you have asked when we'll be having another one.  Well, here it is!  We will be meeting at a new Indian restaurant in Lone Tree that has a meeting area. After you sign up I will contact you with more information and a choice of a few menu items as we'll place our food order prior to our arrival.  We'll have an opportunity to talk, discuss ideas, distribute the new name tags, hear what is new (i.e. a new web site & Facebook page), meet the Board members as they are coming, etc.  Also, some of the new Captains should be there so it will give everyone an opportunity to meet each other, ask questions, etc.  I am looking for some new Event Captains as we've lost some due to health, moving, etc.  If you would like to be an Event Captain or know of anyone who might make a great Captain please let me know.  A new Captain does not have to be an SVGD member at this time and doesn't have to be single. This will be a great opportunity for new Captains to meet others and learn more about what we do as an organization.  I hope you are as excited as I that we are going to be getting together!  

Clothing Donation Sorting for Jeffco Action Center, Sat., Oct. 19th, 9AM-Noon. 6 Volunteers are needed to help sort the donated clothing for the busy week ahead.   During the week people in need shop with volunteer shoppers in their donation "store" that is set up by sizes and types of clothing just like a regular store.  They are told how many items they can receive at the store and are given a time limit for their shopping. We have helped with this portion of their center's activities before and really enjoyed the experience!! The Action Center’s mission is to provide an immediate response to basic human needs and promote pathways to self-sufficiency for Jefferson County residents and the homeless.  They are located in Lakewood. We were going to help them in January but the event was canceled due to the bad weather. I'm happy that we have a chance again to help!

Please sign up for any of these events on the  web site.
