Does all this rain have you wanting to spend time in the sun?  This weekend is supposed to be sunny, and there is no better way to kick it off than to volunteer at the Horn Pond Day Race! 

The North Suburban YMCA is looking for a few more volunteers to help out at this race, beginning at 8am.  For more information on volunteer roles, and to register, please contact Jeremy Stiles at jstiles@ymcaboston.org or 781-935-3270.

Social Media Team Member

This volunteer will assist in spreading news about SCI and local events sponsored by SCI and other community partners.  SCI staff and AmeriCorps members have been actively engaging the community through social media and would like to create an expanded network of people sharing our content to increase the reach and impact. 

This volunteer opportunity can be done from any location where you have an internet connection.  If you are interested in social media, and love to be online, this might be the volunteer opportunity for you!

On Saturday, volunteers are needed to assist the VFW placing flags at Woodbrook Cemetery, also starting at 10 a.m.
