Focus placed on volunteers at May 16 summit

LAKE COUNTY – Everyone in Lake County is invited to participate in a half-day program focused on increasing volunteerism.

The program is free – they want your good ideas, positive energy and desire to make a positive difference.

Lake County has vast resources of people with skills and ideas that can be harnessed to make a significant contribution to the health and well being of our communities. The more we can depend on ourselves – on each other – the better off we'll be.

Attendees will make choices on how to spent their day.

Options include:

  • Brainstorming and sharing ideas for increasing volunteerism in general – to create a culture of “people helping people and neighbor helping neighbor.”

  • Working on special projects such a developing a volunteer referral program, how to spread the word and keep the process growing, coordination among organizations, etc.

  • Learning about recruiting, managing and retaining volunteers with Terry Fries, an expert in nonprofit and volunteer management.

The event will be held in the brand new Lower Lake High School gymnasium from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 16. There also will be the option to continue into the afternoon. Use of the gym has been donated and the Lower Lake High School Key Club has volunteered to help.

Please come and be part of this effort. As Gandhi said, “We must be the change we wish to see in the world.”
