Well, hello.

You’re likely reading this post instead of calling your client. Or writing that report that’s due today.

Good thing you’re procrastinating, because reading this post is worth 2 minutes of your time, requires almost no work, and could possibly be life changing.

Life changing? Really? Yes, because if you act on this post, you’ll help make the Seacoast an even better place to live and work.  Plus, you’ll re-connect with the great folks you remember from your Leadership Seacoast class (How could you forget? Fun in the snow at the Brown Center, eating delicious food at the Stafford County House of Corrections, smiling in that group photo with the Governor at the State House…but I digress).

On September 11, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m., a team of Leadership Seacoast alumni, led by Executive Director Jen Wheeler and me, is volunteering during the 22nd Annual Day of Caring presented by United Way of the Greater Seacoast. We’re rolling up our sleeves – or, more precisely, putting on hairnets and rubber gloves – to package and deliver meals and serve patrons of Rockingham County Nutrition and Meals on Wheels at the Congregational Church of Raymond. Day of Caring is a one-day event where volunteers from around the Seacoast help local non-profit agencies with one-time service projects. Many local businesses and volunteers give their time and services to better meet the needs of our community. By participating, you’re fulfilling Leadership Seacoast’s mission to “impact the Seacoast by developing a base of effective, knowledgeable and engaged leaders.” And, maybe, just maybe, you’ll change the lives of the people you’re serving as well as yours because you’re volunteering.

Sound good? Great, because the next step is easy.

Register for the Day of Caring project here. If you have any questions contact Jen at jwheeler@leadershipseacoast.org or me, Debbie Kane, at kanecomm@comcast.net. Then just show up on September 11 at 9 a.m.

Thanks and we’ll see you there!

Now go write that report.
