With all the wind and rain today and not having to go to work, I thought it would be a good day to start working on organizing the Strathroy Christmas Bird Count. I started this count when we first moved to Strathroy back in 1996. Last year, I did not hold the count because we moved into our new house during the Bird Count period. But this year, I am ready to resume the count after the one-year hiatus.
Also, today, I worked on the membership for the Board of Management for my church. I am the co-ordinator of board membership. Not a very easy job. At least when it comes to bringing new members on board. However, I am lucky in that there is a core group of members that continue to volunteer their time and energy year after year. I need to have the board membership for 2013/2014 fully defined by February 2013.Sounds like a lot of time, but there is a lot of work and time involved in fleshing out the membership structure and putting together the report for the board..
