Radio Eye’s Outreach Committee has had another busy month complete with speaking engagements, community fairs, and hospital and nursing home calls.
In early May committee members Maria Fitzpatrick and Marlene James set up an informational table at a senior fair held at the Lexington Senior Center. Many people stopped by the booth to pick up CKRE brochures and applications, as well as to inquire about volunteer opportunities. In June, Karen Casey and Lissa Probus will be working Lexington’s Senior Volunteer Recruitment Fair, part of local government’s Annual Senior Intern Program.
As listenership continues to grow beyond central Kentucky, Outreach will soon be advertising in local papers for committee volunteers in the Louisville area—having Radio Eye representatives in other cities will greatly help the committee’s mission of educating the public on its services.
Finally, Outreach is in the process of contacting local and regional eye doctors, with hopes of making Radio Eye materials available in a variety of offices and waiting rooms. The committee anticipates no shortage of events this summer and fall—do you have the time and inclination to give to this dedicated group? Please call (859)422-6390 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how you can get involved!
