Women and Men Volunteers Wanted

I know it is difficult in today’s society to find volunteers because both parents work and the work is often out of town with long hours. Our political committee, and most other Middlebury committees, does not require a huge commitment of time but only the promise to attend meetings and contribute your experience. Our meetings are once a month, on the second Tuesday at 7:30 pm at Shepardson Community Center, and generally last an hour. Most other town committees have similar schedules and commitments. I believe a good way for you to get started is to attend meetings as an observer and listen to how your government works. Once comfortable, I think you’ll want to volunteer. Public service is a great way to increase your political knowledge and it will be a good life influence on your children as well.

Please take a look at the positions available.
