The flip side to giving, of course, is volunteering. This is either when, in my opinion, you don’t have the money to give or you have too much time on your hands.
Volunteering is almost always the easy way out to provide some kind of community service or help in some worthy cause. Sometimes, as in the case of interning, volunteering can help get your a real, money-paying j-o-b.
In my case, I do some volunteering with my local Rotary club. One of the things they do is provide parking logistics for the US Naval Academy home games. Yeah. That’s right. We get dressed up in bright, neon yellow vests with equally bright orange flags.
It’s really not as easy as it looks and it’s an all day affair. College football fans don’t just come to watch the game. They come to tailgate and have fun in the parking lot. That means they come early. So, me and about 70 other people are out getting people to park in the right spaces and keep the driving aisles open for cars.
I do other stuff, too, but what bought this to mind is that today is the Navy home opener against the University of Delaware. Newark, DE is really not that far from Annapolis, MD so there will be a ton of fans for both teams descending upon theNavy-Marine Corp Stadium.
The fun never stops.
