Thanks to volunteers, we have fire departments, service clubs and community groups. We can go to community breakfasts and dinners, and to concerts, all organized by volunteers. Students have extra-curricular activities, gardening groups and coaches for their sports teams. Farmers markets, Christmas craft shows and even the Albert County Ex all exist because of volunteers.
Picture our communities. Recall the last few fun events you’ve gone to – were volunteers responsible? Think about when you or a loved one was in need. Did a volunteer help out?
In the next issue of Connecting Albert County, we focus on volunteers. If your organization is looking for volunteers, let us know. We will post volunteer opportunities and, if you send material to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon April 16th, we can include these in our May publication.
