Volunteers wanted for July 4th celebration!

Hi folks,

We need 4-6 volunteers this Saturday to be at the ORIENTED booth and distribute handouts at AmCham’s Independence Day Celebration!

AmCham’s Independence Day Celebration attracts thousands of participants each year and will include carnival games, raffles, live music by the Grand Hyatt Taipei’s “Shades Band”, and great food! For more details, click here

Volunteers are needed at the following times:

3:00-5:00 __________________
5:00-7:00 __________________
7:00-9:00 __________________

If we could get two volunteers per session, we’d really appreciate it!

If interested, please post a message here so that we can respond and also let others know if and when we have enough volunteers.

Thanks in advance!


Hi! I’d be interested in the 3-5pm slot.


Hi Christine,

I’d be interested in either a 3-5 or 5-7 slot …


Hi Lily and Connie,

Thanks so much for volunteering, this is great!

Lily if you could then take the 3-5 shifts and Connie 5-7, I’ll take the last shift. I’ll call you guys soon with details. =)

If we can get two people per shift, that would be best. Any more volunteers? Please?


We’ll stop by and say hello. The little nursling will be in her Made in Taiwan tshirt.

What’s this?! Only 2 volunteers from the Oriented community?? Where’s the spirit? Who’s got the spirit?

Sign me up, Christine, for the 7-9pm slot. You know my contact info.

Don’t worry if there are too many volunteers – the more the merrier, I always say!

We’ve got spirit, yes, we do, we’ve got the spirit, how 'bout you? Yay! Yippee! Yahoo!

Well, just take a look at that lineup! Can you say “booooooring afternoon!”

Is this supposed to be fun, or is it some kind of twisted punishment for being American?

A celebration or a wake?

I’ll be there Christine at 7pm to help out.

Can’t wait to see the fireworks display!
