Current Volunteer Opportunities:
PERIMETER PATH CLEARING
The Parks & Recreation Board will be at the North Village on Saturday, Sept. 29 starting at 1:00pm for a few hours working on a perimeter trail and we are looking for a few volunteers. The 1 mile perimeter trail has been marked out, now it just needs to be cleared so that it can be used by our residents. We will be out there rain or shine!
Put on your Boots and Gloves, and come on out. Parks & Rec members will be bringing some of the more heavy equipment (brush hogs, chain saws, etc.). If you have rakes, shovels, wheelbarrows, or other equipment that might be helpful feel free to bring them along, but all we really need is you and your helping hands!
Park at the Post Office. Whether you can stay for the whole time are just join us for an hour or two, we'd love to see you!

On-going - Senior Nutrition Program Volunteers: Senior Lunches are served at the Community Center on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week. Volunteers are always welcomed to help set-up for and serve the lunches, and to clean-up after.
On-Going - Meals-On-Wheels Drivers: We are working hard to get the Home Delivery portion of the Senior Lunch Program started. Our ONLY OBSTACLE is finding enough volunteer drivers to make the program run smoothly! Meals will be delivered on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Must have a valid driver's license and good driving record. If you can spare a couple hours of your time on even one of these three days, and would like to make a difference in home-bound seniors’ lives, please let us know ASAP!
On-Going - Recycled Greeting Cards: The Community Center is accumulating a large stash of used greeting cards! If you are interested in creating beautiful new cards from old, we need your help. The “recycled” cards are then sold to help fund projects and programs here at the Community Center. Call Tami at 734-449-2295 for more information or to offer your help.
Up-Coming - Walking Path at the North Village: The Parks & Recreation Board will soon be creating and clearing out areas for walking paths at North Village (the new community park by the Post Office). Help will be needed with clearing out weeds and brush, and distributing woodchips.
