Hello my fellow Water Members, 22nd.Dec.06
It is the time for our next four month duty roster. As we go into the new year of 2007, WaterWays Watch will be expanding its activities and events as we proceed with our “5 Year Plan”. This plan was recently presented and accepted by PUB (our main sponsors). Along with support and funding from NEA and many others we are happy with our progress and excited with the challengers ahead.
To begin, can you all revert to me as soon as possible your available dates and preference for duty over the next four months(Jan.-Api.2007). Essentially, for a start, what is required from each of you would be dates(or months) of your duty:
*Saturday 0900-1300hrs. – For Youth Bicycle Patrol (as team leaders for groups of youth assign to WWS) and also School Events doing CIP.
We usually require at least 3 team leaders for the Youth Bike Patrol(in partnership with Singapore Poly n NTUC) and another 3 for the School Events(at present we have already 6 saturdays on request from one school).
*Sunday 1100-1500hrs.(unless otherwise advised)- For normal Sunday Members Boat and Bicycle Patrol. Usually we will organise at least one boat (4-5 members) and bicycle patrol (4-5 members).
Members can book by month or book individual dates. You may select saturday and sunday duties (if suitable) and please do indicate preference for boat or bicycle if you have any. We will try and accommodate as much as possible.
During the course of the year, we will ofcourse be sending emails and sms requesting for members support on programs and events that we will have with Schools, Corporates, Carnivals, Special Projects, VIP Visits, etc. As a true volunteer
it would be good if you could all promptly reply so that it would enable us to plan and organise them more effectively and efficiently. A reminder- School events are usually on weekday afternoons or saturdays.
Those able to advise your “free” weekday afternoons to assist the school programs would be most appreciated as it would help us tremendously when we go and market our weekday School Educational Programs. At present we already have at least 20 possible afternoon sessions on requests.
Finally, Seasons Greetings to all of you and may you all have a great year-end. May 2007 be even better for each and everyone of you and your family.
