Working for the Weekend

Further to yesterday's post:
I did hear back from SLDN; in fact, I had two follow-ups. First, I received an email response to my query. Unfortunately, it informed me that their had been a glitch in the system, and the arrangements had fallen through on their end, so no Pride Cap'n duty for me. Of course, this was not what I wanted to hear, but I will get over it. When I got home yesterday evening, I also found a phone message from Jason Knight, who is now working for SLDN in the communications office, and had seen my post. I called him back today and thanked him for taking notice, and to assure him that I would continue to support SLDN and hoped to find future volunteer opportunities. I sort of feel like I got to speak to a celebrity!

So, my takeaway here it to go ahead and sign up again next year, and be a lot more tenacious in keeping the lines of communication open. And if I can address one suggestion to SLDN, it would be - please continue with more programs at the grassroots level. I can't afford $200 a plate dinners and silent auctions and the like, but I do want to do more than just write an occasional check.

Of course, I continue to be disappointed with the local Pride organization, which once again has not acknowledged my email. I hope to talk to somebody on Saturday and find out why.

Tell you what, Larry. No need to worry about the amount for the dinner. If you would like to come, dinner is on me.
