Volunteering helps others, it is good for you on many levels and provides plenty of opportunities to be part of our town, our community. It is also more positive and productive than sitting behind a keyboard, doing nothing, complaining and giving not-so-constructive criticism. To be a part of the community, get involved, become an advocate and be part of what makes our town a great place to live. Don’t just live here, become a part of ‘here’.
