"When I go into the garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

State Fair Booth Volunteers Needed


Every year since I've been working for the South Carolina Sierra Club, the chapter hosts a booth at the State Fair. This year we need volunteers to help us (and me) keep the booth operational. The Fair runs from October 8 through October 19, and we sure could use your help. Please click on the link below and sign up for a time slot (or two!). No expertise is required; we just need people who want to talk about why they are involved in the Sierra Club, love nature or just like to talk to people. Volunteers will get a free ticket to the Fair, my sincerest thanks and the knowledge that they've helped preserve what little of my sanity remains.

Members, spouses, children, friends, etc. are all welcome.

Thank you.
