A group of reporters. ON Lexie as she's approached by a woman, Donna Farrell.|
Donna: Dr Carver
Lexie: (trying to place her) Hi. And you are...
Donna: Donna Farrell. We met at the hospital a few months ago.
Lexie: Were you a patient?
Donna: No. I lead the parents support group for autism.
Lexie: Oh, yes. I remember now.
Donna: I saw you at one or two sessions, but you never came back. (Smiles) Hope we didn't scare you off.
Lexie: Not at all. My schedule's been so crazy lately and ... when I have extra time I like to spend it with Theo.
Donna: I understand.
Abe: Thanks for coming. (They shake hands)
Lexie: How do you two know each other?
Abe: Donna volunteers on our task force on environmental issues.
Lexie: (thrown) Really? You do that.... and head up that parents' support group?
Abe: (smiles) And she has four kids at home.
Donna: (smiles) Life's a bit hectic.
Abe: So Donna... you said you were recruiting new volunteers?
Donna: Yes. I've done research which suggest that the biggest obstacle to successful recruitment is speaking in generalities --
Abe: So what you'll need to do is give people specifics about exactly you do --
Donna: Right. And what our expectations are ---
Donna: We obviously need a compelling message. I also intend to gather some testimonials, post them on our website...
Abe: You're doing a tremendous job, Donna.
Donna: Well, I think it's important to recruit from every demographic, so our brochure should be versatile enough to speak to a wide range of prospects.
Lexie: All these women.... they're so brave and noble. Instead of wallowing in self-pity they get out there and ... help other people. They make a difference.
Donna: (glances at Abe) Since your husband and I were talking about recruiting volunteers... I wonder if, by any chance, you'd be interested in joining the environmental task force? A physician would be a tremendous asset, actually.
Lexie: (thrown) Oh. I .... (looks at Abe) I hadn't thought about it.
Donna: I realize you're busy and, of course, you son comes first, but...
Lexie: I'll do it. I would love to join the task force. (bravely looks at Abe) Beats tea with the ladies' auxiliary, right?
(Abe takes Lexie's hand in his, smiles)
Donna: That's great. Thank you so much.
