Events & Education Committee Seeks Dedicated Volunteers
The Events and Education Committee currently has nine members and is seeking a few more good volunteers. The work is varied and includes such activities as planning the restoration and education workshops, which so many members have utilized to restore their old homes and gardens. This committee is also responsible for publishing the Reflections newsletter, and all other literature, such as brochures, volunteer manuals, etc. We run the Historic Home tours and other special events SOHO is invited to co-sponser, such as the California Preservation Foundation Conference held last month, or the South Park Old House Fair which we have co-sponsored since its inception. This committee handles public relations and all project-related promotional work as well. SOHO is currently developing a Regional Preservation Conference, which will take a considerable amount of dedication and attention.
Events and Education plans and executes all the great parties SOHO is so famous for. These includes our People in Preservation Annual Awards, all holiday parties, volunteer appreciation parties, annual membership potluck, the Board of Directors election, and many other special event fundraising parties.
In addition, this committee is now also responsible for all Whaley house complex events in conjunction with the Whaley House Steering Committee.
As you can tell, the volunteers on this committee have their hands full, and would love to have new members. The only requirement is that you have the time and willingness to fully commit to whichever event or projects you volunteer for. SOHO is growing at an accelerated rate right now, and, with your help, we can present a strong front in the ongoing battle to preserve this city's precious historic resources.
As a volunteer you would not be required to be involved in each and every project. You may focus your efforts on one or two events or projects that interest you. When necessary, the group will break into sub-committees for an individual event, although the whole committee will still oversee and guide each event or project.
This is a real fun group of people who serve an invaluable and necessary purpose to further SOHO's goals and to implement its mission, which, in part, is to educate the community to the importance of historic preservation.
The committee is seeking volunteers who are able to make a real commitment to the time and work involved with Events and Education. We meet the fourth Monday of each month at 6:30pm at the SOHO offices in Heritage Park. If you would like to be a part of this exciting, fun, and friendly committee, please call SOHO and leave a message for Chairperson, Alana Coons.
