Fair Districts Ohio August All Volunteer Huddle Follow Up

Thanks to all who joined the Huddle last night. Here are slides and a recording. The slides have live links, plus we are putting all the most important links for you below.

A reminder: We will have a new Zoom registration link each month for the Huddle. If you have an entry in your calendar for 6pm on Weds Sept 14, delete it and any others! It’s an old link that we are no longer using. Our next Huddle is not until October 12. 

It’s time to sign up for the Fair Districts Volunteer Appreciation Picnic: Sunday, September 18, 2-5pm, Alum Creek Park! We’re excited about hosting you and having a chance to thank you for all your hard work, your righteous anger and your determination.
