One thing I noticed is that once you volunteer for a kids program in any capacity, you get sucked in.--------------------Once you volunteer for anything you get sucked in. I do my darndest not to get sucked in, but sometimes the organization wouldn't exist if I didn't do stuff. Our dulcimer group holds together only because I run the email list. Back in November we were told that the place we were holding our jams was going to close. We had 3 weeks to find a new place for jams. One guy kindly offered his house for December (ever tried to find an ampty room in December - full of holiday parties). I managed to schedule a room at my local library for January and February. One other person offered their house about 4 times a year and another a room at their condo 4 times a year. It'll all work, but someone needs to coordinate it. Sigh.Here's a very old post on volunteering in wildlife rehabhttp://boards.fool.com/volunteer-creep-19518167.aspxThe dark side of volunteeringhttp://boards.fool.com/the-dark-side-of-volunteering-long-18...I don't mean to discourage Colovion - just that he should very careful not to take on too much. My son is also doing a lot with Boy Scouts.arrete
