*Please Volunteer During Upcoming NMSEA Events!*

NMSEA's mission to promote clean, renewable energy and sustainability in 
New Mexico relies on our volunteer member efforts!  With one of NMSEA's 
busiest seasons, Earth Day, approaching our office receives countless 
requests to offer a table presence at community events.  If you may be 
interested to assist NMSEA during local, community events as a general 
volunteer, the following opportunities are currently available!

*/Sat, April 21: Albuquerque BioPark Earth Day Celebration (Zoo or 
Botanic Garden) 10am-2pm/*
Tabling with literature and a few demos (Small sun oven / PV fountain) & 
lots of people are expected!  We can't commit to attend this event until 
we find a couple of volunteers willing to pick up literature & equipment 
from our office, set up the booth, staff the booth, then pack up & 
return the equipment, so please let us know if you may be interested to 
assist us at the BioPark. 

*/Sun, April 22: La Montanita Earth Day 10am-5pm/*
Always a fun event, table with literature and a few demos (Small sun 
oven / PV fountain).  We need a couple volunteers willing to pick up 
literature & equipment from our office, set up the booth, staff the 
booth, then pack up & return the equipment.  Please confirm your 
willingness to assist us as a volunteer during this event so that we may 
confirm our availability to attend!

/*Sun, April 22: Madrid Earth Day 11am-5pm  at the ballpark.*/
Madrid is always a trip!  If the weather is decent, we'll set up the big 
sun oven.  We have volunteers for this one, but please come on by for a 
visit anyway!
