RE: Need Volunteers for the next CERT Outreach Event – Asian Fair, May 8th and 9th

I have not received any response to my request for volunteers for the Asian Fair next Saturday and Sunday (May 8th & 9th). I will be able to take care of seting up the booth/display, but I have prior commitments both days and won't be in attendance during the core of the operating hours.

We need to have two-member CERT team presence from 10 am to 7pm Saturday, and 11am to 7pm Sunday - in 4 hour shifts, if possible.

Yes, I know Mother's Day is Sunday the 9th, and the reason I have family obligations that day.

Out of the 240 or so currently 'active' in the CERT program we should have some that can help us do outreach events. We are trying to make them more interesting by incorporating 'skill demonstrations' and adding more visual appeal to the display. We welcome your comments and assistance in that regard. CERT is not there just to train you, but to make others aware of the Program and the importance of personal readiness and emergency preparedness.

Any assistance would be gratefully appreciated.
