Thank you to everyone that joined us Monday, January 15, 2018
11 am – 2 pm
We look forward to next year’s event!

What is a Volunteer Fair?

It is an event that connects people.
It is an opportunity to learn more about local clubs, groups, and organizations.
It is an effort to strengthen and enrich our community.
It provides choices to share your time and talents.
It is an occasion to make a difference.

Join us!  The event is free and open to the public!

Challenge yourself to try something different – and you’ll meet people, build a sense of achievement, and be part of something meaningful. And most likely, you’ll discover hidden talents and new skills.

Our first Volunteer Fair was held in January of 2017. Our goal was to provide a location – at no cost – to connect local clubs, groups and organizations with members of the community that were willing to volunteer their time and talents.  We had no idea what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised when 23 organizations joined us, and over 100 members of the community attended. Volunteers joined local organizations and donated their time. People’s lives were enriched. Join us to help make 2018 a great year for our community. 

This event is for anyone who has thought about volunteering and would like to learn more about ways to support local causes.

Most organizations will be offering giveaways and door prizes!
