Volunteer! at English Conversation – Friday June 16

Note = (1) Do not bring young children to English Conversation. We have good reasons for this rule. (2) If you have a name tag… bring it.

Feed the hungry, save the animals, raise money for cancer research, and so on. Several years ago a graduate student from China said she was impressed by how much “volunteerism” is part of American culture. Many Americans give up time, money, and energy to help all sorts of different causes and organizations. Come learn and talk about volunteerism, practice your English, and learn about American culture at English Conversation this Friday June 16 starting at 7:30 p.m. at the home of:

Ro and Dawn Ryan
10348 Rustic Oak Drive, 70810

(Not completely sure this is the correct house. Rick has been here once.)

You can drive yourself or ask for a ride. Important note = Please contact us (email works best) by Thursday if you want to come to English Conversation and need a ride. We will pick you up at one of our bus stops (see list below) only if someone says “I need a ride, please pick me up”. We will not go to every stop on this list. Remember that everyone is welcome and we are happy to pick people up… but people must tell us they plan to come and need a ride.

  • Extremely important! Note new and updated times when we can stop to pick up people! The “old” schedule has too much time between some of the stops. We almost never go to Edward Gay apartments (no one who lives there needs a ride).
    • Boone (next to Place du Plantier apartments) at 6:55 p.m.
    • Highland Plantation (now The Hub) bus stop (the bus stop that is not next to WalMart) at 7:00 p.m.
    • Milford + Gourrier (between El Cid + Embassy apartments) at 7:05 p.m.
    • The Oliver (4600 Burbank Road) the bus stop in front of the apartments at 7:10 p.m.
    • (For a long time we do not have anyone in Tigerland or Brightside who needs a ride. If you live there and need a ride… let us know.)
    • Tigerland (bus stop on Alvin Dark across street from store) at 7:15 p.m.
    • Brightside bus stop (across from Circle K gas station – outside The Blox) at 7:20 p.m.

Directions from Louisiana State University (a little tricky – bring map and directions):

  1. Drive southeast on Highland Road
  2. Turn left onto Oak Hills (turn into Oak Hills neighborhood)
  3. Turn right onto Pastureview (very important! do not miss this!)
  4. Turn right onto Lazy K
  5. Turn right onto Rustic Oak
  6. Look for house 10348 on the right
