As the saying goes, "many hands make light work". We are looking for members to raise their hands as volunteers. As Diablo Region members, we enjoy an active calendar of driving tours, DE days, social events and other club activities throughout the year. These events simply don't happen organically. It takes the combined efforts of many volunteers to make the magic happen. If you are interested in helping out, we can surely use your help. We are especially interested in people helping to plan events. Whether you are an original "Founding" Diablo member or joined yesterday, volunteer today by contacting Bob Hilton at
