Hello Colorado

volunteer opportunities...

Hello Colorado!

Since arriving in Fort Collins, I have had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful people through volunteerism.


My first experience was working with a fundraiser with Rivendale School. I donated a "Pollocking" painted chair, for the school auction, which raised 150.00. Not bad for my "first time out".


I met several wonderful people, parents and educators and the director of the school. Everyone was welcoming, kind and generous and as an added bonus, I received two houseplants which, by a small miracle, are still thriving.


The second opportunity was working with one of the nation's largest outdoor sculpture exhibits, held in Loveland, Colorado, "Sculpture In The Park".


This was an exceptional opportunity to meet and speak with several local and national artists and a wonderful group of volunteers.


My other volunteer efforts have included a painting demonstration at the Fort Collins Museum of History, where I was able to enjoy (while painting) a delightful group of high school musicians playing Mozart and Beethoven.


My favorite volunteerism, to date, has been participating in the annual Powwow and Native American Honor's Day held at Colorado State University, where I am developing my abilities in the art of building Indian Tacos and serving tons of  Frybread, while meeting some of the nation's finest Native American dancers, craftsmen and artists.


Other volunteer efforts include, the Bas Bleu Theater (a few hours of painting stage) where I met a few young, creative and enthusiastic volunteers with lots of energy and refreshing views.


While volunteering with Fort Collins Arts Alive, survey project, I met a couple of wonderful parent-child teams who are also involved with drama programs at their respective schools. 


One of the most recent and enjoyable efforts was working with, Nancy York, in helping to hang the Northern Colorado Artists Association's National Art Competition, held at the Lincoln Center, in Fort Collins.


All these opportunities have put me in touch with many supporters of the county's arts programs and have been an exceptional way to meet people with similar interests in their communities.

Why not volunteer in your community? There are many opportunities to learn, and work with people who enjoy contributing their energy to worthwhile projects.  Everyone has the ability to make a difference, even
a small one.

Peace, love and granola...
