Tell Us What Would You Like To Do

Have you ever wondered if there is someone else who is looking for others who are interested in doing some of the things you like to do?  In recent conversations, we have become aware of GLBT people who are interested in the following activities: hiking where you can take your dog, beach volleyball, and soccer. Interested in one of these activities? Something else you would like to do? Please send in your area of interest and your contact information to the Volunteer Coordinator. We will accumulate the information and put people who share similar interests in touch with each other. This is an easy way to get involved in your Center.

A piece of history: Are you aware that people coming together through shared interests is how the South Bay Center got its start? At a women‚≥†tea hosted by a lesbian couple, suggestion/sign up sheets were made available, like the idea mentioned above.  If someone took the ball and ran with it, the idea was implemented. The question was asked if there were others who would be interested in starting something in the South Bay. Ten women signed the interest sheet, and the seed was planted for what is now the  South Bay Center. See what getting a few people together with similar interests and goals can create.
