Join the DAASV Events Committee, and help us plan and execute events and activities in 2018. Plan an event that will attract the people you want to meet. Sharpen your event planning and project management skills with like-minded alumni. This is a great starting point for getting involved in your Club.
All DAASV members are welcome.
April is peak wildflower season at the only natural preserve in San Mateo County. Due to this year’s rains, the flowers on the serpentine grasslands are expected to be spectacular! Plus, there is an excellent chance to see the threatened Bay Checkerspot butterfly.
A wildflower walk is also especially fitting for Earth Day. Friends of Edgewood Park docents will lead us on a Dartmouth-only, moderate hike with frequent stops in the park, leaving from the Clarkia Trailhead off Cañada Road near I-280. (Restrooms and water are available only at the Education Center by Edgewood Road.) Wear sturdy shoes and sunscreen, and bring water, a hat, and a snack if you wish.
Help with food for the needy: Second Harvest Food Bank
On Dartmouth's 4th Day of Service, please join other Dartmouth alumni in providing some of our great “helping hands” to one of the largest food banks in the U.S., the Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties. Second Harvest provides food to nearly a quarter of a million people each month - people who sorely need their help. More than half of that food is healthy and nutritious fresh produce!
So, please join us for a Second Harvest Food Sort on Saturday, May 5, from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM at Second Harvest’s Cypress Center at 4001 North First Street, San Jose. Dartmouth alums can help make a difference - and help with food for the needy in our community is a great way to provide that help!
Young, strong backs are especially welcome, as food sorting usually involves quite a bit of lifting and bending. Participants must be at least 14 years old, but youths 14 and over must be accompanied by an adult. The dress code at the Food Bank is casual and comfortable. No shorts and no tank tops are permitted. Closed toe shoes and long pants are required.
Here’s a link to a video about Second Harvest’s amazing work!
