Spring and Summer 2022 Volunteers needed!
For example, one possible event coming up is the Painesville Township St. Patrick’s Day parade on March 13th — with a parade at 3pm from the fairgrounds to Hellriegels. Who would like to march to promote the Alumni Association?
Another idea is to have a table or booth at various RHS events like sports, plays or concerts, plus, perhaps, periodic booths at the flea market that is every Saturday on the fairgrounds where we could have a booth, applications for memberships, a 50/50 raffle and t-shirts for sale. Or a booth at the various summer events in downtown Painesville — like Party in the Party and Fall Fest. Who could volunteer a couple of hours?
The board is also thinking about a golf tournament in the late summer or fall at a course in Lake County. Would you be interested in working on a committee find hole sponsorships or help register people at the tournament?
We always need help at the annual picnic, usually held in August.
Let us know if you are interested in helping the association raise money, raise awareness and have fun! Fill out the form below to let us know what activities you can help with, and generally what days and times you would be available. Thanks!
Of course, the alumni association is always interest in volunteers for the following specific areas of expertise.
We have thousands of alumni, former staff and others who have some connection to the Riverside High School community. All of these people represent hundreds of different professions and trades. Even if it’s just sharing some advice, we need to draw from all of that expertise and experience to help the association grow.
The association also holds or are part of several events each year.
We know many of you would volunteer if you just knew exactly what we needed from volunteers.
So, as you can see from the list below, we have several well-defined areas where we need help. No matter what level you are, you can be of some service to us.
We have a Communication Committee. It provides direction and content for the website, social media posts, Email campaigns, newsletter and other promotional material. This group is also responsible for collecting and updating the mailing list. Please contact us if you are in Marketing, Public Relations, Graphic Design (etc) and/or have experience with a WordPress website; social media; writing newsletters and press releases, producing video, or taking photos.
There is always a need for someone who has experience in fundraising to generate ideas and connections to help increase revenues. Please contact us if you would like to lead or be involved with the fundraising committee.
We depend on paid membership to help sustain and keep growing the Alumni Association. Anyone with experience growing organizations through membership please contact us.
Board of Trustees
The board of trustees is comprised of nine members — alumni, faculty or staff or community members. The board generally meets once a month, and our activities are generally in the spring, summer and fall. Board terms are three years. Officers are elected from the board members.
There are other duties that could be fulfilled.
Are you good at keeping databases and spreadsheets updated?
