10 DAYS LEFT TO SUPPORT TEAM NEIGHBOR RIDE
Our very own Program Manager Andrew Burkowske and Volunteer Driver Charlie Riesz are taking on representatives from 4 other charities in the Rotary Club of Columbia/Patuxent’s first-ever Oyster Shuck for Charity – being held from 2pm to 5pm on Sunday, March 26th at Hudson Coastal. There are two great ways that you can join in the fun and help our team be shuck-essful while raising money for Neighbor Ride:

- You might be spotted by a roving team of enthusiastic folks who will be out and about looking for and delivering prizes to volunteers who are on the road in cars displaying Neighbor Ride magnets.
- You might be rewarded for being an Early Bird, Night Owl or Long-Distance driver.
- You will receive an invitation to a fun and informal Volunteer Celebration featuring a Dessert truck (yum!). The event is scheduled for the afternoon of Thursday, May 11 at Kittamaqundi Community Church in Columbia from 1p-3p. Special Thanks to our Volunteer Program sponsor, BWFA!
