Call for Volunteers – 2014 / 2015 Season

Below is an excerpt from the most recent Coloradans for Nebraska eNews.  For the full eNews, which includes watch partner locations, football game information, Colorado Staycation Discount Rates, and more visit http://conta.cc/1pfGVb3   Please use the link on the right hand column to sign up for the Co4NU eNews.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Richard Wilson.  I was born and raised in Morrill, NE.  I attended Chadron State College.  I am a diehard Nebraska fan.  The 2014 / 2015 Football Season is upon us.  I wanted to reach out to each of you, the Coloradans for Nebraska members, and let you know that I will be the new point of contact for Watch Site Volunteers.  I will be working with the volunteers to setup a schedule of who will be at what Watch Partner Location throughout the season.

I cannot emphasize enough how important it is that we have volunteers at as many sites as possible.  Without volunteers, Coloradans for Nebraska will not be able to maintain our goals to keep sponsoring young adults from Colorado in the quest to further their education by attending the University of Nebraska.  With the help of you, our members, for each of the last 4 years we have helped to provide over $40,000 each year in scholarships.  Can we reach that goal or more for the 2015 / 2016 school year?

Will you please consider volunteering for a watch partner location?  We will be working to staff with volunteers specific locations first to ensure resources are used the best way possible.

Please email me at Volunteer@Co4NU.com with your availability for games and locations.

Thank you – Rich
