Calling all volunteer organizations

Fair can help drum up interest in community-minded groups

Hope Library is putting on a Volunteer Fair to Celebrate National Volunteer Week 2012 and are calling on other organizations to participate.

This is a good opportunity to let the community of Hope know more about your organization, and have the chance to attract some new members.

All community volunteer organizations are invited to participate and must be willing to set up a display table with information about the organization, and have applications for new participants.

The Volunteer Fair will take place at the Hope Library or (depending on the level of interest from community organizations) at the Hope Recreation Centre. It will be held during National Volunteer Week, on Wednesday, April 18 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

To be a part of the fair, contact Jacquelynne Garden at 604-792-1941 ext. 233, or by email at Jacquelynne.Garden@fvrl.bc.ca.
