Volunteer

“Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in”.    ~Author Unknown.

Whether you volunteer with a group or on your own, giving of your time can be a rewarding experience. Volunteers can choose the types of projects they would like to help with.  We enjoy working with Eagle Scouts and Girl Scouts, as well as various youth and adult groups.
