While I am the organizer and administrator of Old Dominion Dance and I make the big decisions,Â the dance organization is a group and as such I wouldn’t be able to function without all of you. So thinking with the mindset that you, as an attendee, are part of this volunteer group, I am asking for your help.
How can I help, you ask?
The website needs a facelift; my mass emailsÂ could useÂ a more professional look. Every month we need eight gallons of punch and 100 cups, and we always like to have the information table nicely decorated. We’re behind on finances. I alwaysÂ like to be drawing in new people, and I have aÂ desire toÂ connect with the arts community in Omaha. All of these things take hours of unpaidÂ work, funds, and connections that take time to establish. I need you people who enjoy our public dances and want them to continue to step up and help when and however you are able.
Besides active assistance, I also welcome your thoughts and input on any issue related to the dances. I was very pleased when one of our attendees requested a dance to be done on October 14th. Don’t hesitate to email me withÂ any questions.
I don’t want to sound complainy, but I want to be honest. I also don’t want to get burned out and have to give up the dances. I hope to continue to host them for as long as I’m able. But I’ve reached a point where to continueÂ the public dancesÂ I need volunteer participation.
I’m so thankful for all of our attendees both faithful and sporadic. Are you thankful for the dances?
