In the cold, gray room that masqueraded as a Speech Lab at Belmont University, the Planning Committee for Family Literacy Day met for the first time.
With the energetic Kate leading the meeting, responses weren’t as joyful as I would have hoped. This may be simply because it was Monday, and the awkward weather discrepancies leave one wondering whether to bundle on up in scarves and tights or throw on a tank top.
Regardless of many melancholy mumbles of agreement to choose a committee, it did give me the opportunity to sweep in to head up the PR, Promotion & Publicity committee for FLD 2012 (tentative date? March 29th).
In early planning, we need lots of volunteers, and when I say volunteers, I mean energetic volunteers, happy volunteers, or at least, caffeinated volunteers. Whether out of the goodness of your heart or out of the deep desperate desire to put something attractive on your résumé, volunteer. It will be good for you.
Last year’s event was beautiful! Read about it; then write to me if you’d like to help out!
Because seriously, we need some more pep.
