Dear Charleston Chapter Alums,
I hope you all are doing well! I know it's been a while since we all got together, so I wanted to follow up and let you know about a few things.
For those that are interested, I have added some new upcoming volunteer opportunities throughout the Lowcountry. I added them on the Group Main Page under Posts, so make sure to check them out if you are interested in volunteering.
Also, there are a lot of exciting updates, news and changes to the national service movement with the recent passage of the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act. I also had a great meeting with a representative from the Mayor's offce to talk about ways to increase the presence of AmeriCorps here in the Lowcountry.
If anyone is interested in getting together, I would love to share this information with you all and talk about how as a Chapter we can help take part in trying to increase the presence of AmeriCorps here. If so, please stop by Gene's Haufbrau in West Ashley on Wednesday, May 27th at 6:00 for happy hour and a chapter get together.
If you can make it we would love to have you, and if you have any questions in the meantime, please feel free to contact me at 563-650-8127 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
