Local Event - HRTL NEEDS VOLUNTEERS

We have two opportunities in September which are very important to us. One is staffing exhibit booths at the Senior Fair and various locations for the Combined Federal Campaign kick-off. This is the equivalent of the Aloha United Way, only for federal employees to “check us out.” The other is the distribution of our voter guides to the churches. Here is the information. If you can volunteer for any of these projects, please e-mail HRTL.

Senior Fair Blaisdell Exhibition Hall, Friday – Sunday, Sept. 22-24, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The greatest need is in the morning when most of the “seniors” come. Any number of hours you can staff our booth will be greatly appreciated. We can use 2-3 persons at a time.


Combined Federal Campaign (John needs 1 volunteer for each of these days.)

1, Tues. Sept. 19, Officers Club, Hickam AFB, 11 a.m. - 1 p.m.

2. Thursday, Sept. 21, Federal Office Bldg. downtown, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.

3. Friday, Sept. 22
Monday, Sept. 25
Tuesday, Sept. 26

They have not told us where these “Service Component” events will be but the times probably are the lunch hours, 11 a.m. – 1 pm, so workers can browse the booths.

Primary Election Voter Guides

I need help calling churches to see if they will accept our voter guides. Distribution or making them available to the congregation is perfectly legal and will not endanger a church’s IRS status. Our guide is a bit different in that we list the voting records of incumbent candidates.

I am attaching the flyer that we are using for getting “orders.”

First, if you can check with the administration of your own church about receiving the guides, it will save us a phone call. You should report to me so I can check your church off the list. Read the attached page to see the choices for obtaining the guides.

Second, if you can make phone calls, we will assign a page or two from the Island Christian Guide (available at grocery stores or Christian book stores, or I can get the pages or names to you. All the ways a church can get the guides or masters to make their own copies are listed in this attachment.

Many thanks if you can help us out with these two projects. Please call me anytime at 531-6737. I work from home unless I am in the RTL office. There is an answering machine at both places.
