Serve Rhode Island would like to invite all AmeriCorps members and program staff to the 2010 AmeriCorps Opening Day “Call to Service” Rally! Opening Day is the annual kickoff to the service year for all AmeriCorps members in the state.

This year will also feature the candidates for Governor who will speak about the topic of national service and volunteerism in Rhode Island and respond to 2-3 questions from AmeriCorps members. Here are a few pictures from last years event!
