We are happy to partner new volunteers with experienced volunteers and no previous experience is required.  Help us reach out to our community and inform people about all the great things we do.

This particular farmers market promises to be our most entertaining one yet and we plan to have a special mascot helping out for the first time.

June 7th, 2015 - Volunteer to Assist Partners Superstars Event

Humanists Doing Good will be assisting the Partners Superstars event on Sunday, June 7th at Lincoln Park. Partners' mission is to make a difference in the lives of young people by helping them develop a positive self image, a sense of belonging, and an acceptance of responsibility for their actions. We're seeking volunteers who will help oversee relay races and swimming events (no need to swim).

Volunteers need to arrive by 8:30 am to sign in at the volunteer table. Shirts will be provided, so please RSVP as soon as possible and let us know what size of shirt you would like to receive. Eight to ten volunteers will help with starting, lap counting  and timing each lane during the relay. Once the relay race is over, we will transition straight to the swimming event where volunteers will watch each lane at both ends for safety and timing the event. The competitors will run 5 lanes on each event.

The overall theme is summer camp. Volunteers are encouraged to dress like you're going to summer camp -- wear a sun hat, have a white sunscreen nose or whatever you want that is appropriate for the day and kid friendly.

Join us as we volunteer to help create a positive and fun experience for our local youth and assist Partners in this fun fundraising effort.

When: Sunday, June 7th from 8:30 am - Noon

Where: Lincoln Park

May 31st, 2015 - Hike Mr. Williams Geological Trails

Mike Williams was a beloved geology teacher at Fruita Monument High School. He died during a fieldtrip hike in Arches National Park in 2007. His wife, Felicie, spent the last seven years making twenty three signs that explain the extraordinary geology of the local trails that her husband shared with his students. The signs were installed in 2014.

Felicie Williams may hike with us to offer a brief explanation of the area. Her sister, Betsy Greslin is an active member with HDG.

We will meet at the Devil’s Canyon trailhead near Fruita. at 8:00 a.m. The Devil’s Canyon trail is an easy 3 mile round trip hike. There is an optional 1.5 round trip hike with additional signs on the adjacent Opal Hill. Directions from Grand Junction: take I­70 west to Fruita exit #19. Turn south (left), through the roundabouts. Travel 1.5 miles to the Kingsview Estates subdivision. Turn west (right) in to the subdivision. Stay on the main road all the way through the subdivision. Devils Canyon Trailhead is approximately 0.5 miles ahead on your left. The trailhead sits back off the main road via a short access road and is not easily visible from the main road. Watch for the sign.

When: Sunday, May 31st at 8:00 am
