Want to feel closer to your community? Volunteer.
The Lakeville Journal Editorial
On Sunday, August 13 The Lakeville Journal will hold its 2nd Annual Community Fair. We hope it’s a lot of fun, and we also want to spread the word about all the ways people can get involved in this place we call home. Volunteers are the lifeblood of our community.
Many of us already know this. We volunteer at the fire department, the ambulance corps, the library, the food pantries, our churches and synagogues and environmental groups.
Nearly 30 organizations are coming on August 13 to show us what they are doing and how you can help them. They have many missions: Preserving local culture, supporting land conservation, strengthening education and youth development, fostering economic growth, providing social services and healthcare services, creating affordable housing and encouraging civic engagement.
Some of the organizations attending include:
21st Century Fund, Five Points Arts, Great Mountain Forest, Habitat for Humanity, The Little Guild Animal Shelter, Music Mountain, Noble Horizons, Salisbury Community Dog Park, Salisbury Congregational Church, Crop Walk/ Salisbury Congregational Church, Salisbury Family Services, Salisbury Rotary Club, Sharon Playhouse, SOAR Enrichment, The Corner Food Pantry, The Moviehouse, The Salisbury Forum, Salisbury Winter Sports Association, Project SAGE, Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation, Housatonic Child Care Center, Lakeville Community Conservancy, Taconic Learning Center, Sharon Hospital, The Jane Lloyd Fund, The Lakeville Hose Company, Salisbury Volunteer Ambulance Service, The Salisbury Housing Commission, The Salisbury Housing Trust, The Salisbury Housing Committee, Sharon Social Services, Geer Village
There’s lots of volunteer work to do. See you on August 13!
