As some of you know, I'm currently enrolled at Shoreline Community College for their Clean Energy Technology Degree.
The College is once again hosting the NW SolarFest
which is brought to you by the Shoreline Solar Project (www.shorelinesolar.org
). This event is free to attend (5,000+ peeps last year), family friendly and put together by volunteers every year. They'd love to see you at the Volunteer Meeting THIS 'SUN'day (and so would I!). Can't volunteer, but you're interested in attending the NW SolarFest as a visitor? Info for the event itself is also below so keep reading.NW SolarFest Volunteer Meet & Greet & SWEL Time Bank Orientation

Do you have a talent or passion that you can share? Would you like to learn a new hobby or could you use help around the home? Come learn how time banking facilitates the exchange of services, builds relationships and strengthens our communities one hour at a time. What is time banking? It’s neighbors exchanging time to help neighbors. At its most basic level, time banking is simply spending an hour doing something for somebody in your community. That hour goes into your time bank account as one credit hour. You then have a credit hour to spend on having someone else do something for you. All hours are valued equally. Joining the timebank gives you access to the talents, time, and skills of your neighbors, while giving you an opportunity to help others in meaningful ways. It's a great way to get connected with others in your community. Learn more at www.sweltimebank.org
If you are interested in earning Time Bank hours for your volunteer service at NW SolarFest you are required to attend a orientation. If you bring your SWEL membership application you can join the Time Bank and bank one hour. To speed up processing bring your application to the meeting. Note you need at least two non-family references. You can get the application here: http://www.sweltimebank.org/Portals/22/Docs/SWEL%20Individual%20Application%20(rev%2012.13).pdf
