Already a CRC Volunteer?

2017 kicked off CRC’s 5th year in action.  The end of our work is near!  A final decision by the Ontario Municipal Board will be made, potentially starting late Fall 2017.  CRC remains vital and strong because of you! 

New to CRC Volunteering?

Welcome and thanks for exploring!  Please add your name to one or more jobs or tell us what else you hope to do.  The need is urgent for a longer list of volunteers per job.

Kathie and Lee answer questions at an event.

NOTE:  Certain jobs can be done in pairs or small groups with your friends and family. So let us know if this makes it easier for you to volunteer. As well, we appreciate you referring your friends and family to volunteer, as often as possible.

Below are recurring and evolving opportunities.

Ways You Can Help

Just do it! No need to pre-arrange:
♥ Follow and retweet @CRC Rockwood
♥ Follow, like and share our Facebook page.
♥ Be a roaming photographer! Email your photos of volunteers and other Hidden Quarry-related scenes to crc@crcrockwood.org.

A. Drivers, Exercise Fans and more…

  1. Transport 3D Model (3’x5′) to/fro Everton.  Note covered (from rain!) vehicle space requirement.
  2. Transport tent, tables and marketing materials.
  3. Help set-up and strike our booths.
  4. Walk event posters to retail stores, Rockwood/Acton.
  5. Manually address special but infrequent mailings for Canada Post delivery.  Occasional need for internet address search.  Work from the comfort of your home, day or evening.

The above five are essential jobs mostly linked to a variety of CRC public appearances.  When we contact you with specific dates and details, you’ll decide if you’re available.

B. Co-Host CRC’s Booth  

Thanks to Lars, teacher and CRC member, students from Brampton earned volunteer credits prepping and serving food at the Nylons concert. A win for the CRC.

♥ Be yourself.  Talk about what matters to you re HQ.
♥ Join CRC Directors at one or more events and public markets.
♥ Chat with your community.  Meet new supporters, welcome donations.  Take social media photos, host Virtual Reality experience of Brydson Creek.
♥ Average a 2-3 hour shift, per event.

♥ Orientation is provided.  Co-Hosts stick together and help each other.
♥ See schedule below.

2017 Schedule – Public Events.


Contact Alix Mabee to volunteer
or to find out more:
amabee@crcrockwood.org
or call (519) 853-9182.
  1. February, Community Meeting.
  2. April, Nassagaweya Info Night.
  3. May, CRC Plant Sale Fund-Raiser.
  4. June, Rockwood Pioneer Day.
  5. June, Waterstock.           
  6. August 13 – Sunday, Acton Leathertown Fest. – 11am – 5pm.  Lively!
  7. August 16 – Wednesday, Rockwood Farmers’ Market. – 4pm -7pm.  Scrumptious!
  8. September 10 – Sunday, Eden Mills Writers’ Fest – 11amish – 5pmish.  Charming!

C. Board Minutes Recorder – Back-up – Join Directors to record and prepare Board minutes when CRC’s regular Recorder cannot attend; his career gets in way!  You’ll be most appreciated one week night every other month, 7-9pm, in Rockwood.  The job keeps you in the know!

D. Facebook Partner – Partner with CRC’s Facebook Captain to help write content and act as back-up support.  Share your strong writing skills, creativity and Facebook expertise.  Your collaborative style is CRC’s style too.  Time requirements are occasional through the year.

E. Project Leaders/Captains – Sometimes we overload ourselves.  CRC wants to ease the load with a longer list of potential volunteers willing to run with the baton.  For example, are you willing to plan and implement at least one Booth?  Or would you consider co-leading even one special event?  You would never be solo on a project because team and collaboration define the CRC.  Can we persuade you to share your proven strengths in leadership?
