I had a wonderful time training 8 new volunteers this past week. I’m excited to get to know them all better and for our veteran volunteers to get to know our newbies. Thank you for taking the time to attend the training and your commitment to help educate your community about health and nutrition.
I will be training a few veteran volunteers in Redmond this Thursday on our adult curriculum. We’ll be at Building 1 on the Redmond COCC campus from 1-3. Please let me know if you are interested in joining us. And again plan to have a training in the later part of March in Bend for this sort of thing. Then we can reach out to the smaller surrounding communities if volunteers are interested.
Sign up for events: Please make sure to sign up for some event in February! Just call me or email me if you’re interested. (click the link to the right that says (Volunteer Event Calendar) to see dates and times.
February Recipe: Our recipe for the pantries this month features beans. We’re going to be making the Refried Beans in the Bean Cookbook. I’ll also try and have some of the “How to use Dry Beans” brochures to hand out.
Returning Pedometers: You can stop by the Bend office on Monday between 1 and 4 to drop off any that you’ve worked on at your home. Thank you for your help!
Thank you so much for your service!
