If you are planning to volunteer this Saturday in Dimond Park, we
invite you to print and fill out the waiver ahead of time to streamline
the sign-in process.  You can download the waiver at:

<br>
All Dimond Park volunteers must fill out this joint City of
Oakland/FOSC waiver for the 2010 Earth Day event even if you already
have a waiver on file with FOSC.  However, this will be the only piece
of paper you need to fill out on Saturday morning!  Thank you to the
City of Oakland for working with us on this waiver.<br>
