About This Series

Volunteers are the lifelines of any vibrant community. Volunteers keep us strong and most of all help us stay in touch with our each other.

Volunteer opportunities vary. Some are re-occurring, some are individual-day events, and others are a part of a larger community celebration.

We've detailed a few events here and all volunteer activities will be listed as an event below. To sign-up to participate please complete the online form and a representative from downtown will be in contact.
