WHO conference has enough helpers Get I.D.s this week

After putting out a call to round up more helping hands last week, volunteer co-ordinator Diane Maxey has gotten her wish.
She now has a full complement of volunteers to work at the World Health Organization’s 11th International Conference on Safe Communities here next week.
“We have enough now,” Maxey said this morning. “There was a great response from people and I’d like to thank everyone for that.”
Including all of the committee members who have been working at organizing this conference for anywhere from the past few months to years, between 250 and 300 people have volunteered to help out in some way.
But Maxey also stressed the volunteers must get their photo I.D.s as soon as possible.
“We’d like to have them done by tomorrow. But certainly, have them done by Friday, before the delegates start showing up,” she noted. “Otherwise, it could be chaos.”
Volunteers can get their security badges at the Memorial Sports Centre. Hours are today and Wednesday from 11 a.m.-7 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
Maxey said if, for some reason, you can’t get there during these times, call the Memorial Sports Centre and see if anyone there can take your photo when it’s convenient for you.
These I.D.s are necessary for conference security.
