A Note from Jill Nooney, Bedrock Gardens Founder — from their December 7, 2018 newsletter

This card makes me so proud of the care and respect our volunteers extend to those visiting the garden (and each other) and the generosity of spirit for a visitor to take the time to tell us. I hope it helps to warm your holiday to know such kindness and honor is alive and well at Bedrock Gardens.

The generous folks this letter describes includes GSAs, Peggy Tucker & Deb Nugent. Thank you for being you!  Click on the image to enlarge.

 

 

 

Notes & Instructions

GSA Sign Up
Welcome Center shift calendars are open through APRIL 2019. MAY 2019 ‘center’ calendars open February 1, at 6am.
** The center calendars open at 6am when the 1st falls on a weekday. The center calendars open at 8am when the 1st falls on a weekend or a holiday. Events, meetings, tours, and activities have their own designated sign-up dates/times.



Posting Hours
If you served at the White Mountain National Forest, a State Tourism Division run Welcome Center, or an event that was NOT managed by an onsite GSA staff member (like Strawbery Banke, Hillsborough events, or Bedrock Gardens) – CLICK HERE – to submit your hours. All others will submit your hours at the end of each month. If you have a question, email emily@nhgsa.com.


GSA Merchandise – Online Store
GSA embroidered merchandise orders are fulfilled twice a year (you can pre-order at any time). This enables us to provide our shirts at a major savings. Samples will be available at our AMBIEs Awards luncheon and our holiday party. Bulk orders will go in the day after these two events and take 2-3 weeks to come in. We do have some items in stock.


DONATE – SUPPORT WHAT YOU LOVE

If you love being a GSA and what it brings to your life, please consider a year-end tax-deductible donation to support our organization. We appreciate donations of any amount.

Click here to donate online or you can send a check to: Granite State Ambassadors • 470 Mast Road • Goffstown NH 03045.  Please write “donation” on the memo line.


HELP SPREAD THE WORD

Are you a member of a fraternal organization or club that encourages its members to do presentations? We would love for you to talk about your experiences as a GSA volunteer. We have basic presentations, hand-outs, and talking points available. Our staff is also happy to attend and speak. Email kelly@nhgsa.com.

We have rack cards and volunteer cards available for GSAs to hand out. One side is “Become a GSA” for friends, and the other side is “Host a GSA” for businesses.
