Volunteerism is worthy endeavor

I have been volunteering in the community for 17 years and am currently the president of South Range 4th of July committee.

I feel a sense of purpose and also making the community a better place by volunteering. I do strategic planning, accounting, reporter interviews, sales and implementing new ideas. Also I have loved meeting new people and enjoy the teamwork of the committee.

When I first started volunteering, I was more shy in the beginning but eventually I became more engaged at the meetings and then felt more comfortable meeting new people. I even feel more comfortable now talking to TV, radio and newspaper reporters.
