will be there at 6 to greet everyone.

If anyone wants to bring literature to promote their green issue
please do so-
we will have an area for brochures, business cards, etc.
We will also take back any extra literature back and bring them to the next Green Drinks.
The main thing is just to relax and have a good time.

PLUS East Side LA Green Drinks co-coordinator Hannah Dvorak-Carbone has a terrific volunteeer opportunity at the Children's Nature Institute-

On Saturday, June 3, 2006, the 16th annual Kids’ Nature Festival will host more than 3,000 young children and their families at Temescal Gateway Park in Pacific Palisades—and we need more than 300 volunteers to make this critical fundraiser a success! Proceeds from the Nature Festival benefit CNI’s science and nature programs for underprivileged pre-K through 3rd graders.

The Kids’ Nature Festival features dozens of activity booths, live concerts by Dan Crow, great food, live animals, gift shop, silent auction, and more!

With varied, fun volunteer positions (like face painting, arts & crafts, activity booth supervision, admissions and event administration, to name a few), there is a job to suit every talent. Volunteer shifts are 9am-1pm, 12:30pm- 5pm, and 3:30pm- 7pm. Volunteers who work more than one shift receive a free lunch. Volunteer positions are also available on Friday, June 2 for event preparation; June 2 shifts are 1pm-3pm and 3pm-6pm. Volunteers 12 years and older are welcome; Community Service Credit is available.

For more information or to sign up, contact Volunteer Coordinator Suzanne Curtis at (310) 860-9484 or
