Car Free Day – June 19, 2016 on Commercial Drive
- 18 volunteers in Green Party T shirts, raising the profile of the Green Party. With various shifts, the booth was staffed with 4 – 6 volunteers at all times.
- 10 new volunteers gained experience in staffing a booth – they seemed to have fun and would like to do it again.
- Four new friends came by and volunteered for our next event
- We gained a new Green Party member – we never really expected any new members or donations at an event like this. We just wanted people to see the high profile of the Green Party and start thinking about becoming a member or volunteering.
- 66 signatures on the Proportional Representation petition
- 35 new contacts – we’ll be giving away 7 cotton totes to the winners. We also gave ten cotton totes to our new volunteers. Adriane Carr loved hers!
- Three blue boxes full of e-waste to recycle
- A large bag of plastic bags to recycle
- 395 pipeline postcards completed – these were signed with name and address at our booth. This doesn’t count the other hundred or so that were handed out to people too busy to sign at the time.
