“How many events do you think our club sponsors every year? I was doing a quick count of calendar entries while preparing our annual activity report and found well over four hundred individual events. Some are relatively routine, repeated events that need only a modest amount of preparation, while others are large-scale special events that can represent weeks of work by multiple individuals. The sum total of volunteer effort that goes into supporting more than four hundred events a year is amazing! The diversity of events is also striking – from museum and embassy visits to mah jong games and creative sewing, and from investigations of Berlin’s best pastries to hard exercise that works off the pastries’ effects.”
