Volunteering

I’m really glad that our Porch Talk show has been so popular.  Sometimes the simple ideas are the best ones.  For those who don’t already know, Porch Talk is a casual conversation where we get to know one of our neighbors here in Colonial Beach a bit better.  Our town is full of interesting people […]

This weekend many of us participated in helping to make the video for our submission for the HGTV “Small Town Makeover”.    Eric Nelson explains it better than I can…   This is one of the many good things going on in our town.  It’s so nice to see the future looking bright for Colonial […]

Today Ted Tait, Bill Butler and I (Tom Larson) met with the Dashan Turner (Superintendent of CB Schools) and Tricia Williams (CB High School Principal).  We provided a station overview and outlined our vision for involving Colonial Beach students in WWER’s future while learning valuable skills in the process.  Both Mr. Turner and Ms. Williams […]

I wasn’t sure if we were going to have enough people to do this, but we pulled the Easter Rabbit out of a hat and managed to get enough people as of yesterday!  If you have been wondering about what WWER will be about but did not attend the March 30 meeting, please feel free […]

Lest you think nothing is going on between blog posts, nothing could be further from the truth!  We have several volunteers working hard on several fronts, and need more! Most are working without any formal titles, but soon we will start to name people to positions (in an ‘acting’ role) to start creating some structure […]

Thanks again to all those who attended our first meeting.  I think the lovely weather may have kept some people outside instead of in a meeting, but those who attended had a nice discussion of what lies ahead.   We had a nice mix of people with some skills that we will need for WWER.  We […]

I’ve been coming to Colonial Beach for more than 10 years (I’ve had a house here nearly that long), but never knew that there was a radio station licensed to the town that started in 2009.  Then one day I read that there was one, and that the licensee no longer wanted to broadcast.  As […]

Please join us for our first volunteer meeting this Saturday, March 30th at 10:30am. As per Wikipedia, ” Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity where an individual or group provides services for no financial or social gain “to benefit another person, group or organization”. If you are unable to make this meeting but want […]
