Volunteer Appreciation Night planned as TETNA encourages more residents to get involved

There are so many ways to get involved in our neighborhood. Tosa East Towne Neighborhood Association invites residents to consider donating their time and energy to ensure our events and services continue in the future.

Please email info@tosaeasttowne.org if you are able to help fill any of the following volunteer roles:

TETNA board: The board meets once a month to carry out the business of the neighborhood association, and board members typically are asked to help now and then at events throughout the year, though each event is organized by a designated coordinator. Attending our annual meeting is a great way to learn more, and you can submit your name for our board election on the spot. This year’s annual meeting is 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 18, at Red Dot.

Newsletter distribution: Help distribute copies of our newsletter to homes on your block three times a year.

Newsletter editing: We are looking for residents with a background in communications and/or writing to help compile our newsletter, which is produced three times a year and features short articles on past and future neighborhood events.

Sponsor and advertiser outreach: Help us maintain our existing base of business supporters and add new sponsors and advertisers through personalized contacts.

Kathleen Flanders

Past coordinator Kathleen Flanders hands out drawing prizes before the 2017 Spring Egg Hunt. This year’s hunt is March 24.

Spring Egg Hunt: This year’s hunt is Saturday, March 24. Email us if you are available to help set up at Center Street Park.

Run Tosa Run: Want to help organize our next 5K? We’d love to have you on board. No experience in race management is necessary. We also need residents available to help on race day, which this year will be May 19.

Trick or Treat: Volunteers will be needed to help with registration and our kickoff event, and we’re also looking for an assistant coordinator to help with planning.

Taste of East Tosa: This popular November event is in need of a coordinator, who will line up the East Tosa restaurants that provide the food for the evening. Please let us know if you will help preserve Taste of East Tosa as a TETNA tradition.

Volunteer Appreciation Night

We also want to say thank you to everyone who already is actively involved as a volunteer, from the neighbors who deliver our newsletters to the course marshals who make sure our Run Tosa Run race goes smoothy. Our first Volunteer Appreciation Night will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. March 13 at Tosa Bowl & Bun, featuring a relaxed evening of socializing with fellow volunteers and a sampling of food from Tosa Bowl & Bun’s menu. Drinks, including beer and wine, will be available for purchase.

Invitations were emailed to known addresses on our volunteer list. If you’re one of our volunteers but didn’t receive an invitation, let us know by emailing info@tosaeasttowne.org.
