As I mentioned in an post last week, I belong to our local Lion’s Club. As our town is small, it’s no surprise that it is a small club and hubby and I are the youngest members. This doesn’t bother us, but it’s kind of frustrating to hear about other projects other clubs are involved in, and our Lion’s Club is set on doing eye screenings at the local scho0l, selling hot dogs at town events and then a Memorial Day weekend breakfast.
For a few months I was volunteering my time at our town reading room and I stopped due to my job at the time. I need to start going back, if they need it. Granted, it’s not that exciting. There was plenty of days I spent the entire two hours without a single person coming in…but I never can complain about being surrounded by books. Luckily that’s an easy fix. My MIL is involved with the Reading Room and she can definitely tell me if they could still us my help on Thursdays.
I think I may also want to see if the local Animal Shelter could use some help. It’s something that I had thought about even before I moved here, but thanks to this blog post, I remembered that those places often can use help.
If that doesn’t work out, I’m not sure what else…I know when I lived in Suburbia, there was a link on the local paper’s website that took you to a site that informed people of volunteer opportunities in the area so maybe there’s something similar here.
