Hot weather, politics and volunteering
What will you be doing to stay cool this week? Have you been checking on your elderly neighbors or phoning them to see if they need anything when you have to go to a store? Are you staying out of politics? Ha!
This will give you time to decide on lending a helping hand to your favorite town activity! Needed will be help at the Fiddlers Jamboree, the annual House Tour, the Christmas Bazaar and Children's Party, and the yearly campaign to fill and deliver Christmas baskets. In addition there will be more activities that need assistance - watch this column for more opportunities to help! To volunteer, call 623-9305 or 623-2580.
