On Sunday, Sept. 16th, SAR will staff a first aid station during the El Sobrante Stroll. We are looking for  people to help with this event in West Contra Costa. We need to arrive by 9:30 in the morning and stay until the event ends at 4:00 in the afternoon. If you are only available half the day, we can accommodate you. Check the team site for details and to sign up.
