Frederick Training for Hagerstown Clinic Escorts – Saturday, January 7

As our training page indicates, we do have a need for volunteers willing to escort at the clinic in Hagerstown, MD. Hagerstown is a bit further away, about a 1 hour drive northwest from Rockville, MD and 90 minutes east of Baltimore. Thus — transportation would be needed. WACDTF escorts at the clinic most Saturday mornings.

We’ll be holding a training session on Saturday, January 7 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm at Trinity Chapel in downtown Frederick, MD. Please visit our training page or email [email protected] to RSVP or receive further information.

February WACDTF Training rescheduled — to March!

Hi everyone —

Unfortunately, our February 21 training was snowed out.  It was a tough day to determine what the weather would hold — since the morning showed almost no sign of snow.  But the flakes started falling at around 11:30 — and an hour later (30 minutes before our training was to begin!) MLK Library announced that they’d be closing early. We regret any inconvenience that this caused…

We’ve gone ahead and rescheduled our training to Sunday, March 22 at 1:30pm.  It will take place at MLK Library, Room A-3 in DC — at 901 G. Street, NW.  It’s across the street from the Gallery Pl-Chinatown Metro stop (on the Red, Yellow and Green lines).

As always, RSVPs to [email protected] are appreciated (but not required).

… and it brings up a good question that many folks had:  In case of inclement weather, how will we know if training is still on?  The best bet is to follow us on Twitter for the latest announcements: http://www.twitter.com/wacdtf . We’ll usually defer to the status of the location where training is being held.

We’ll see you on the 22nd! (Unless, of course, we get another blizzard. But we’ll deal with it then…)
