We Volunteer!

Our neighborhood is full of opportunities for  volunteering.  Here are few ideas collected by Sue Colley at our spring event.

Good to talk with you at our last gathering.  We certainly do a lot of volunteering!  I was amazed!  I have compiled the list of the places that were mentioned and I hope I didn’t leave anything out.  I wasn’t able to meet with each person so I know this list is not exhaustive.  The purpose of the list is to provide inspiration and/or ideas about what else is out there to do.  It can also help if you would like to put your foot in the door and want to see a familiar face.  If you see something that looks interesting or you would like to know more, know that we can hook you up.  Sue Colley, Volunteer Committee
