East Bay Bicycle Coalition Volunteer Night: Volunteers ‘n Veggies

Join us for a special edition of EBBC Volunteer Night. This month we’re moving Volunteer Night to Thursday – why? So we can enjoy the Fruitvale Village Farmer’s Market right outside our office! We’ll be setting up tables on the patio outside our office, so there will be plenty of room for everyone to enjoy each other’s company, take in the Farmer’s Market, and munch on some tasty treats.
