Depends on the weather
March 26, 2010 - Kylie Saari
Interview after interview I hear the same thing. Event organizers can't accurately predict how many will come to their event in the spring because it depends on the weather. But they aren't talking about the excuses heard in winter - the ones that refer to if there is a major, road closing blizzard they won't be there - they are talking about those people who just can't be bothered to make a committment.
Now, I enjoy the nice weather as much as the next person, and for events that there is no RSVP, I can understand chosing not to come if the weather is nice and a family stroll is in order.
It is when someone RSVPs, then doesn't come, saying the weather was too nice that gets me. It boils down to integrity. People put a lot of work into organizing events, and to be told "I'll come if something better doesn't come up" belittles the work involved. Or worse yet, when someone is supposed to help plan the event, but doesn't come to comittee meetings.
Over and over we hear in the news that organizations are pulling back or shutting down all together because of lack of involvment. Let's show our kids what it means to be a community. Let's get involved and stay involved - even if the sun is shining.
