Joan:  I hope this email finds you well!! I wanted to reach out to you to see if there were any volunteer opportunities with the Downtown Corvallis Association?  The OSU Honors College is looking for a few more volunteer opportunities for our annual Morning of Service on September 18th.  I’ve included some additional information below for your review.  We can send teams of around 10 students to you, with the capacity of sending you as many teams as you may need.  Tasks can be anything that your organization may need (cleaning, painting, pulling weeds, etc.)
The Honors College at Oregon State University is still seeking on/off-campus sites to send incoming freshmen students to for our annual Morning of Service project.  This year's Morning of Service will be on Monday, September 18th, 2017 from 8:45 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.  We will have approximately 220 students participating in various service sites across the Corvallis area. Each group of students will be accompanied by a student site leader, who will help engage the group in meaningful conversations throughout the morning.  The student site leader will also serve as your point person during the site visit.

2- Making Peace with Your Body
Our bodies hold so much on our behalf: fear, anger, trauma, loss. And Wisdom. Yet we wage war with our body repetitively. We eat, drink, sleep, and exercise too much, or not enough. We don’t speak when our gut says to shout. We quell the urge to dance because our dance is too unique. Such acts muffle our internal voice of wisdom/intuition. Yet, we can learn to listen again. We can reclaim the extraordinary resources embodied in our physical form. The techniques of yoga offer an active path toward making peace with our bodies. Each session will include gentle movement, breath work, meditation, and discussion.
   Saturdays 1-3 pm Oct. 7, 14, 21, 23 Nov. 4, 11
   $165 before September 1; $185 after
