Heads Up on community service

The Obama Transition Team wants to set up a “National Day of Service” on January 19th, the day before Inauguration day (and, also, during Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend). You can find events in your area using the inauguration website, which is set up a lot like My.BarackObama.com.

Currently, there is none such event in Waltham. The closest is a training on energy conservation in Newton.

Come on! Waltham Group, this is your moment to shine! Everyone else – this is the perfect time to start meeting President Gray’s challenge for every club to have a community service component.

Also – smart famous people think that Obama is Laying Groundwork for Post-Inaugural Citizen Service with the robust tools on the website. Be warned.
