Volunteer Request for Welcome Signs Maintenance

OPSRRA needs volunteers as part of a subcommittee to do some maintenance on our Welcome to Otter Point and Shirley signs.
These signs were made possible through fundraising by OPSRRA in 2011 and with the help of volunteer labour by OPSRRA members. They are a real asset to our communities.

The signs have been inspected and need cleaning and some touch-up painting, possibly structural shoring-up of one post on one of the signs.

We have received a small amount of grant money from the CRD to carry-out repairs, so OPSRRA will cover the costs of materials needed.

Ideally, this work should be carried out before the end of September 2018, and before the rains start. Depending on the number of member volunteers, 1 or 2 teams could form and do the work quickly.

Timeline: August to September 2018

We are looking for volunteers to help staff our OPSRRA Booth again this year as part of our membership drive.

It’s a great way to meet and chat with local residents and talk about issues that matter in our community.
OPSRRA enrolled a number of new members at this event last year and our booth was well attended. 

If you can help out by staffing a shift at the booth, please contact:
