Past Volunteer Events

03/07/2015 - Ms. Lewis County Pageant (3.5hrs)

First of all, I apologize for the picture, as taking pictures at each event was an afterthought. This was the very first event that we volunteered for as a small group. There were only 3 of us involved, but this is when we started thinking about creating a volunteer group in order to get more people working to improve their community. This event lasted 3.5 Hours. Work completed includes:

  • Loading truck from storage facility in Napavine.
  • Unloading stage equipment @ R.E. Bennet Elementary in Chehalis.
  • Followed concise direction to construct the stage scaffolding as a team

03/15/2015 - Ms. Lewis County Pageant (2.5hrs)

After the event ended, we came back to help again. This time there were 5 of us, so it went much faster! We set a record for the fastest deconstruction of the stage equipment yet!

  • Deconstructing the scaffolding while keeping labeled parts seperate.
  • loading all of the equipment into the truck at R.E. Bennet.
  • Unloading at a storage unit in Napavine.

03/26/2015 - Centralia Friends of the Library Book Sale (2.5hrs)

There wasn't much forewarning with this event, as I checked my email, I read it was only a week away. This was the first event that was created through our Facebook group. Although 7 people RSVP'd, only 4 from our group showed up. But we did a lot of heavy lifting and made some great connections through members of the Friends of the Centralia Library. We also recieved 5 free books of our choice for our hard work. It was well worth it!

  • Setting up tables and chairs in the conference room.
  • Moving boxes of Books, DVDs, & Games from the garage to the conference room.
  • Arranging (& re-arranging) all items by genera.

03/28/2015 - Centralia Friends of the Library Book Sale Day-2 (2hrs)

Event was from 3pm until 5pm. The goal was to clear the room we filled up on the first day. I was the only volunteer on day two.

  • Filled boxes of books by genera.
  • Moved boxes back to the garage with a hand-truck.
  • Collapsed tables, and put away.
  • Removed signs on wall using a ladder.
