Chesapeake Bay Foundation
November 22, 2010
My wife,Darlene, & I enrollrd in the classes not knowing what could be done but knowing something should & had to be done. The wide aspects of CBF's functions opened many ways to "give back".Both of us are retired and have the time to man the booths and work @ VIMS. Through these activities we have met many dedicted CBF people that made what we do worthwhile.Also meeting the public, as reps for CBF, and telling them about our challenges is rewording. Most people are receptive and ask about our training. We are proud to be part of CBF & thanks for the training & a chance to display what we learned.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Meeting the public & watching & enjoying the reaction we they find out what needs to be done & what has been done.
Also the CBF people amaze me when they show a real concern for the Bay................it is not a job, it is a true love for what they do
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Make things such as the VOICES training more widely known.Knowledge makes people aware of what HAS to be done
Volunteer & We have woked booths @ many public affairs e.g, Bay Days,Earth Days, the wokboat races.Making oyster reef balls @ VIMS and the cleaning process.
