Geez, I guess I should have asked more questions!

So, anyway I volunteered to help the local Humane Society with some grant writing tasks. This group has a core group of very dedicated volunteers. I knew I didn't want to get involved in some of the rough and tumble animal tasks, however, someone was going in for knee surgery and I felt compelled to do more volunteering. However, they have not provided the information I need in order to write the grants, which I am not happy about. Now, they want me to do some kind of all day volunteer project tomorrow..it is raining here off and on..and it involves building a tent..and all sorts of things, YIkes! I think they should just cancel this event in the first place. No one is going to be there on a rainy Saturday, plus there are other events going on in the area. I will go because I said I would..but just assuming someone knows what to do..and is willing to do all the tasks. It sounds like it is going to be a total drag. If they have internet it might not be too bad.

Yeah, other than the grant writing I think this may be the first and last time I volunteer!

No it doesn't, but it is at a winery, so I guess I can drown my sorrows! I am gonna ask her what happens if it is pouring down rain in the morning.

I think they should have provided you with all the information you would need. Seems like poor planning is going on, but sure glad you will help out despite that.

Some of these volunteer groups aren't really very well run although all their hearts are in the right place. Hope it isn't too horrible for you.

I just hope I am not expected to be wrangling a bunch of dogs I don't know..Passing out literature would be fine..
