HVC Outreach Event a Success!

From our Project Leader, Karla,

The Atwater Village "Summer Nights on the Blvd." event went extremely well. It was a beautiful community building event. There are two more nights like this planned by our Chamber of Commerce, for the third Thursday of August and September. Maybe we will have a booth on those nights as well (to be discussed at our next meeting). Susie, Tara, Melissa and I setup a booth with information about the Hyperion Volunteer Corps. It was our first very public venue, where we attempted to gain new membership and increase awareness for our mission and involvement in our future service events. Thanks to Judy, who wasn't able to attend, but somehow was miraculously able to get posters, T-shirts, water bottle labels, and one-sheet flyers all printed with our new logo that she created. Thanks so much Judy!

We not only focused on promoting our HVC, we received 33 new interested names of individuals who are interested in becoming a part of the HVC. Welcome! We also handed out information concerning Obama's Healthcare Reform Plan. We collected 44 signatures of support. I have written to Senator Diane Feinstein, Senator Barbara Boxer and Congressman Adam Schiff, to encourage them to support Obama and vote for his three point plan. Reduce rising healthcare costs, allow all patients a choice in their own coverage and their own doctor, and quality care for all, by the end of this year. We desperately need quality healthcare for all Americans!

Regardless, of our small numbers, the Hyperion Volunteer Corps mission and passion for change is mighty and ever growing. Thanks to all of you and our families who encourage and inspire us to be the change that we seek.

If not now, when?
If not me, then who?
