Hi, I would like to find out when there are volunteer opportunities posted on here.  Is there any way to get them sent my email, etc.?

Hi My name is Michelle and I am hosting an event at Mosaic this Wednesday for National Running Day to support a non profit after school program called Girls on the Run.

The idea is to come after a run or a workout and have a drink or two with other active Astorians! Mosaic will donate $1 for every drink purchased during the event and many local Astoria businesses have donated items for a raffle.

Here are the details: http://www.whyleaveastoria.com/events/national-running-day

I hope to see you at Mosaic on Wednesday!
