Dec. 24th, 2015 - HumanLight & Treat Packaging

Come and celebrate the uniquely humanist and secular holiday, HumanLight, and carry out a good deed in the process. We are asking everyone to do some baking in advance so that we have a variety of delicious treats brought in that we can spend time packaging together. Our goal is to then deliver these baked treats to people who are stuck working during the holidays or who are otherwise away from their families during the holiday season (truck drivers, hotel staff, etc.). We will have teams of volunteers delivering the treats on December 25th that you can also volunteer to participate in.

When: Thursday, December 24th from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Where: Garden Room at The Commons (625 27 1/2 Road, GJ - park at the rear of the building and enter through the external Garden Room entrance)

Dec. 6, 2015 - Leaf Raking Good Deed

We'll be raking leaves for a neighborhood in Grand Junction for free and with no strings attached as a good deed for our community. We have done this every year since our beginning and we always have a great time and meet interesting people who are very grateful for the unexpected assistance.

Volunteers have already posted flyers in the neighborhood to let people know that we'll be in the area and to try and identify any particular homes that could especially use assistance (elderly, disabled, etc.) We ask that you bring your own rake and gloves for the event. We also recommend layered clothing so that you can adjust to the weather. Often we wear our yellow volunteer shirts over other warm clothing.

After helping the Chipeta neighborhood, we will have an optional opportunity to help a family in Fruita that is currently dealing with an illness. You can absolutely help with the Grand Junction portion and not with the Fruita portion of this volunteer event.

When: Sunday, December 6th from Noon to 2:00 pm

Where: Park on the street on the 700 block of Chipeta Avenue

Nov. 29th, 2015 - Corn Lake Trail Walk

Lets walk off a little of that turkey with a walk on the Corn Lake Trail from 32 road to 33 1/2 Road, a 3-mile round trip walk that follows pretty close to the Colorado River. It's a very scenic part of the Corn Lake Trail and gives you the illusion that you are much further out in nature than you really are. Parking and entry to the trail is free from the D Road entrance. We will meet at 1:00 pm to give it time to warm up a little. Afterward, Fini has invited folks to her place about 10 minutes from the trail, for a little wine and fellowship!

When: Sunday, Nov. 29th at 1:00 pm

Where: The parking area is just east of 32 Road on D Road, and there is a large sign that the Parks and Recreation Department put up on the right side of the road.
