The Eagle Rock Music Festival Needs Your Help!

The Thirteenth Annual Eagle Rock Music Festival is looking for festival volunteers.

Eagle Rock Music Festival is an annual centerpiece in our free arts programming of Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock, one of the last remaining arts and cultural programming centers in Northeast Los Angeles. Center for the Arts, Eagle Rock is a non-profit 501(c) 3 organization whose mission is to provide multicultural, innovative arts programming to the communities of Northeast Los Angeles. Programs include exhibitions, community festivals, free and low-cost after school arts classes, a Summer Art Camp, and more.

Volunteering at Eagle Rock Music Festival is an opportunity to put your talents to good use, learn new skills, and make new friends who love music as much as you do.

Our volunteers are present at every entry point to the festival, and many stages and venues along the boulevard. Most volunteer jobs require little to no experience.

FIRST, fill out the Volunteer Preferences Form Here: http://is.gd/NtJvhk

Then plan to attend an Eagle Rock Music Festival Volunteer Meet Up!

We’d love the chance to meet you in advance, so if you’d like to pop in and meet some of the Center for the Arts Eagle Rock staff and other volunteers, please come by at one of the times listed below, and bring friends who want to volunteer, too. These are scheduled as casual meetup times, drop in, hang out, we might have some projects to do, like badge-making or sign-making, or we might just hang out and get to know each other better, answer your questions, talk about bands… etc. We’d love it if you could make it to one of the Volunteer Meetups, but they aren’t required and no need to attend all of them.

• Sunday, September 25 11:00 AM – 1:30 PM
• Tuesday, September 27 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Center for the Arts Eagle Rock’s address: 2225 Colorado Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90041

Once you have completed the online volunteer application, and attended one of the Volunteer Meetups, you’re good to go. If you can’t make it to a Volunteer Meetup, it’s fine, but plan to come 30 minutes early for onsite training before your first shift!

Fundraiser for the Animals!

We are hosting a fundraiser at Colorado Wine Company on April 28, 6-8pm to benefit the North Central Animal Shelter!

Join us for wine, raffle prizes, and saving puppies - taste some good wine for a good cause!

Our goal is to purchase sponsorship for as many kennel cages as we can, since that way the money goes directly to the care of the animals at North Central.

If you can't make it out, you can donate by sending a check made out to LA Animal Services and sending it to us at Tracy King, 2014 Estes Road, Los Angeles, CA 90041. We will add it to the total kennel sponsorship to help us reach our goal.

If you're in Missouri and want to donate closer to home we have a great vet in Springfield that has done a lot for the family. You can call and make a donation in honor of Jeanne Spradlin: 417-865-5367, or send a check to All Creatures Pet Hospital, 902 West Kearney, Springfield MO 65803.

Green Monday

Turn a blue Monday green with some of these tips for reducing your carbon footprint and at the same time save money by using less gas in your car!

Drive Greener

• Shade: Park in the shade when possible, and cool down your hot car by driving with the windows down before turning on the air-conditioner. Over time these practices can result in a much smaller workload for your AC—and significant energy savings.
• Tune-ups: Change your oil, check the fluids, replace spark plugs, and perform other regular maintenance tasks to save fuel. Rotate your tires and keep them properly inflated. For every three pounds they fall below their recommended pressure your fuel economy will fall by one percent. When it’s time to replace tires consider using low-rolling-resistance (LRR) alternatives, which can boost your mpg.
• Smooth ride: Slow down. Driving 75 mph instead of 65 mph burns 10 percent more fuel. A smooth ride also helps, so use cruise control when it’s practical. Stop-and-go driving and jackrabbit acceleration really take a toll—just one second of “pedal to the metal” acceleration emits almost as much carbon monoxide as half an hour of normal driving. And when you’re not driving your car, turn it off—don’t let it idle.

How to age successfully

Since we all do get older, here is a helpful article from Jenny Buchanan, staffer at the Solheim Senior Living Community.




Ten Tips About Aging For 2011
by Jennybe on January 5, 2011 in Senior Living Tips

I imagine each of us would like to move gracefully into old age knowing when and what steps to take so that we are as happy and safe as possible, and that our grown children or other caring family and friends don’t need to worry about us and/or shoulder the burden of caring for us.

I’ve worked at a Senior Living Community for two years. Here are a few things I’ve learned from observation as well as personal experience: I’ve chosen to use the pronoun “you,” since sooner or later if we grow old…

1. OUTLIVING YOUR SPOUSE AND FRIENDS.
Most aging adults find that their network of friends and contacts are dwindling and even if they don’t talk or complain about it, they are worried about aspects of their health and mobility.

2. FALLING IN ONE’S OWN HOME IS LIKELY TO HAPPEN.
One way to prevent unnecessary falls is to remove rugs – though they add warmth and beauty to home, the cost of falling is not worth it.

3. PHONE MAY BE OUT OF REACH IN EMERGENCY.
With heart attack, stroke, and many other health threats, getting medical help in a timely fashion can save your life. Consider implementing a health alarm system that travels with you such as Life Alert or Life Line.

4. SKIPPING OR TAKING TO MANY MEDICATIONS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS PROBLEMS
Implement a counting system if you take more than one medication a day – this is simple and inexpensive.

5. FORGETTING TO MAKE REGULAR BATHING A PRIORITY.
From my experience working with seniors, I would not have believed that personal hygiene would ever be an issue, “cleanliness is next to Godliness,” in most people’s personal belief system – so it is sad and bewildering that seniors sometime neglect this priority unless reminded regularly.

6. CHANGING REGULARY INTO CLEAN CLOTHES.
Again, I never would’ve believed that this could have grown into a real issue of daily living as senoirs that once were successful professionals accustomed to wearing cleanly laundered dress shirts and a suit and tie to work every day now find it difficult to dress.

7. MISSING MEALS.
When aging people live alone this tends to become a real problem. Shopping, cooking, and preparing meals takes planning, time, and effort. Though we all know regular nutrition is imperative for sustaining good health, it is often a short cut that those living alone begin to take all too often.

8. NOT DRINKING ENOUGH FLUIDS.
Lack of hydration is common with the aging population and creates or contributes to ill health and well being.

9. NOT EXERCISING ROUTINELY.
As most of us know, exercise is vital to good health no matter what one’s age, but maintaining an appropriate exercise routine changes with age and is probably more difficult to maintain with age.

10. LACK OF SOCIALIZATION WHICH CAN LEAD TO DEPRESSION.
While some people are naturally more sociable than others, we all need social interaction at some level. Those people who maintain interaction with peers and/or regular socialization report healthier happier lives at all ages.
