How do you capture the spirit of a community like Oasis? Stories help. Pictures help. The closest I have seen, however, is a video prepared by a volunteer, Adam, where we celebrated the birthday of one of our dearest volunteers. It captures the essence of Oasis by showing how the volunteer portion of our community came together, across generations, genders and geography, to express appreciation for someone who epitomizes the essence of Oasis.
Oasis is service. Oasis is growth. Oasis is sharing. Oasis is relationship. All mixed in with humility. Oasis is love.
In fact, we used this video at a recent conference to illustrate how volunteers can be recognized. Thank you Adam. Thank you volunteers. And most of all, thank you Janette. The video is found at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1zqhCNvbF-9o8xAiseLa6ljNoIlimNcqz/view.
