Volunteers Make Our Organization Work
First-time visitors comment on how well organized our meetings are. It works because many volunteers share the load, and bring their own creativity to whatever needs to be done. Volunteers are the wheels on our bus - and without them, we’d grind to a stop!
And just because a position, a function, appears to currently be filled, we all need back-ups. Its just as in our Parkinson’s journey: we need a back-up, a contingency plan, for when availability changes… and it can change without warning! Talk to group leaders, committee chairs, or other volunteers to see where you might fit in.
GREETERS welcome and check-in members & guests. You can also volunteer in other ways including room set-up/breakdown, 50/50 managers and sound system set-up.
REFRESHMENTS (Oceanside) volunteers help prepare, lay out and clean-up refreshments. Donated refreshments are appreciated, and should be scheduled with Joyce Lanza.
