More volunteer experiences

Just a roundup of recent experiences of bloggers who've volunteered at evacuee shelters:

Perry sees a dichotomy.

Hope feels overwhelmed, while her coblogger Eileen reports some happy news.

Ray came down with a cold; he also has some happy news, and more techno-volunteering information.

Not a volunteer experience, but definitely worth a read: Via John, a firsthand account of the "Hurricane Pam" exercise.

And finally, benefit time: Tonight's the night for the Saint Arnold's Red Cross Fundraiser.

The only way to celebrate New Orleans is to have some good drink, good food and good music. We're going to supply two of the three: drink and music. You are welcome to bring your own tasty food. Music will be courtesy of the Zydeco Dots. Laissez les bon temps rouler! Admission will be $12 per person in advance, $15 at the door. 100% of the proceeds from this evening will go to the Red Cross. We will also be donating all the profits from any glass and shirt sales that night. So be charitable and have a good time! Here are the details:

Red Cross Benefit at Saint Arnold Brewery
Tuesday, September 13
6 PM to 9 PM
Admission: $12 in advance, $15 at the door
For advance reservations, call or email Ann ( or 713-686-9494) with credit card information. Advance reservations must be made by noon on Tuesday.

And a big one in Houston:

On Oct. 1, Reliant Stadium will be the site for concert featuring George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, Willie Nelson, Martina McBride and ZZ top.

Tickets, which go on sale 10 a.m. Friday at Ticketmaster locations and online, run between $39.50 and $125, with a limited number of $1,000 VIP packages available.

I'll bet that sells out quickly, so be prepared to buy early if you want to go.

Uncle Tillman, can we keep our amusement park?
