Calling for Volunteers !

Dear Members,

MNS Miri have been invited to participate in two upcoming events:

1. 15 April 2013 (Monday) - Curtin Earth Day 2013 Celebration, 10 am - 3 pm @ Curtin University
2. 20 April 2013 (Saturday) - Shell and SFC Earth Day Beach and Reef Clean Up, 7 am - 1 pm @ Piasau Boat Club

These events are ideal opportunities to spread the message of conservation and to get more people excited about nature. There will be at least one committee member at these events to man the stalls but we certainly appreciate any volunteers to help out where your time permits. Needless to say it also enables visitors to know more about our activities from fellow members. 

At both this events, MNS Miri will be setting up a small booth/stall to display posters, distribute membership forms and sell our t-shirts. Volunteers will be expected to help man the booths/stall together with one of our committee member, chit-chat with visitors, collect membership form/fee and just flash the occasional cheery smile in case our committee member falls short in that area. 

Please contact Joyce @ mnsmiri@yahoo.com to register your support or if you have questions.
