We have a couple opportunities to get some publicity and give back to the community. On April 27th JaxPAL(Police Athletic League) will be hosting the first ever SWAG (Students Working to Achieve Greatness) Awards to celebrate the kids here in Jacksonville that are trying to make the world a better place. They are looking for 10-15 photographers to takes pictures of the event and the kids receiving awards. The event only lasts one hour from 1pm until 2pm at the Florida Theater. They would like to have images back in the same day if possible. I will be volunteering. If you would like to help also, please let me know so I can tell them how many of us will be attending.
The Mandarin Garden Club will be having two upcoming events that we would like to invite your club members to attend as guests. We would like to invite you to participate at our function to promote your organization as well as your members can photograph our gardens. We can have a station with a small table to share our information with attendees at no cost.
The event will be at 2892 Loretto Road on Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 9:00am – 3:00pm. A public garden day will take place where the public is invited to come and visit their gardens. They will be celebrating 25 years of the native demonstration gardens at our club. There will be programs taking place in the clubhouse on native gardening, Monarch Milkweed Initiative and wildlife nuisance during the day along with BBQ for sale, garden tours and Master Gardeners will be in the various demo gardens to talk to the visitors. We need a few more volunteers to man the table. Please send me an email and let me know what times you will be willing to volunteer.
