<<      In the same way, the example set by the guy who has an Altoids
tin in his beltpouch to put his cigarette butts in, or the lady who has
to empty her beltpouch every couple of hours because she is constantly
picking up small stray trash.... apparently these examples are not enough
to propagate the trend. The root of the problem, IMO, is that we need to
teach this to our new people, we need to show them that it's worth it. I
wish I could give practical suggestions on HOW to teach it. But teach it
we must, or we will still be attempting to do these things ourselves from
behind our walkers.

I agree with you to a large extent.  I think that we need to 'invite' those
new members to assist us with working on the events.  Many new folk are
willing to help, but don't know how or who to ask.  If you 'invite' them to
join your group, perhaps that will help them get started.

I'm a member of a very small canton.  When we host an event, the Seneschal
remindes everyone at meetings and online, that this is OUR event and we are
ALL expected to help setup and clean up...there are no separate 'committee's
for these duties, as there are not enough of us.
