Before I start playing in barnyard dung tomorrow at Hess-Hathaway Farm Park in Waterford Township for yet another volunteer gig, I am reaching out to you to share stories and photos of your volunteer experiences.
I want to know what you have been up to. Send your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them into a slideshow. Tell me who you are, where you're from and why you volunteer. Feel free to share any funny stories about your experiences.
For those of you who have some time on your hands and want to get involved, a new opportunity may be able to match you with the perfect volunteer experience.
A volunteer speed matching service will take place at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, May 20 at Old Town Hall, 486 Mill St. in Ortonville.
The event, which draws heavily on the speed dating craze, will see volunteers move from table to table in a bid to find their perfect match. Local service organizations will organize the whistle-stop first dates and have three minutes to woo potential partners.
It sounds like it will be more successful than speed dating!
