Volunteer Spotlight - Wildways Volunteers
The Shasta Land Trust is fortunate to have over 200 active volunteers who lend a hand and pitch in wherever and whenever we need them most. This month we wish to thank our Wildways Kickoff volunteers and event co-chairs of the 2015 series of Wildways events.
Our Kickoff volunteers put in an amazing 230 hours to make our annual fundraiser a tremendous success. A very big THANK YOU to Penny Harris for organizing and decorating the hall, Tammy Douse for heading up all the food preparation, Dave Bush for arranging the auction, Deb Townsend for putting together the raffle baskets, Aaron Hatch for handling all the evening's finances, Don Koch and John Haynes for stocking and keeping the bar up and running, and Jake Dickmann for coordinating our many volunteers.
Sixty-six volunteers helped with the set up and clean up of the event, arranging auction items, checking in guests, cooking food, selling Wildways event tickets, pouring drinks, cashiering tickets and memberships, and selling raffle tickets. We couldn't possibly pull off such a large event without them!
The Wildways Kickoff event on Saturday, February 21st drew 250 people, our largest attendance yet. The Kickoff literally kicks off our season of Wildways events throughout the year, which feature some of the most unique and interesting outings in the north state. Wildways events are hosted by SLT volunteers and supporters, and all proceeds from ticket sales support our mission to conserve local land. This year, Ann Duchi and Sue Keller co-chaired the event planning committee and helped develop our 28 exciting events featured in 2015. Thank you, Ann and Sue, for all your time, talent, and energy in creating a fabulous line up of events!
