2. Outreach opportunities
Volunteers needed for the following events. Bring a friend! Let us know so we can plan coverage ---
Oak Woodland Trails improvement meeting: Wednesday, May 25th - Leafleting: 5:30 to 6:30. Meeting starts: 6:00 (ends at 7:30 p.m.) GGP Senior Center (Fulton near 37th Avenue). Come a little early and hand out leaflets at the door. Oak Woodlands folks are interested in habitat and should be informed about the damage to the habitat that the soccer fields will cause. Feel free to stay for the meeting. (Other dates: June 15; July 13)
Sunday Streets: Sunday, June 12th, 11:00 – 4:00 p.m. · Bayview, 3rd Street from Bayview Opera House to Dogpatch, Lower Potrero Hill. Join our volunteers if only for an hour or two, and then go off and enjoy the day. This is a fun way to talk to people and enlist their support and a great way to get to know other parts of the City.
(Next date: July 10th: Great Highway and Golden Gate Park)
Ocean Beach Vision Plan public workshop: Saturday, June 4th. Anytime between 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. (Final time and location TBD - somewhere in western Sunset or Richmond.) Hand out leaflets as folks arrive to view the most recent plans for Ocean Beach - from the Cliff House to the Zoo. While you are there, give input on any plans near Golden Gate Park and ask to keep the Park a place for nature – not development! Leafleting will be continuous – come at any time.
3. Can’t come to a scheduled event? Want some exercise and to get to know the neighborhood? Come join us in distributing leaflets !
Many, many people in the Outer Sunset and Richmond Districts still do not know about the soccer fields project (or the water treatment factory!). Join your fellow Ocean Edgers in walking the local area and leaving leaflets. Let us know you are interested, and we’ll have a leafleting party.
Other ideas are to leaflet at places like Other Avenues and ask people to sign-up for our group.
4. Commonwealth Club Panel
Thanks to the many people who attended this enlightening discussion. Attendance was over 90 people! Many had never heard of the soccer project and talked with us afterwards. The panel will be broadcast by the Commonwealth Club in a few weeks – we’ll let you know the date and time.
(Left to right) Moderator: Jim Chappell. Panel: Mark Buell, Anthea Hartig, Katherine Howard, Mike Lynes, George Wooding
5. Get your button now and wear it with pride!
Our new buttons are a great success. Members took a bunch to the San Francisco Tomorrow dinner, along with our flyers – the buttons were snapped up by attendees.
Get a button (only $1.00 donation) and wear it. People will ask you: “What is happening with Golden Gate Park?” You can give them a short talk and then the flyers, which are FREE – yes FREE – with the button! (Well, OK, they are free anyway….)
