Annual Volunteer Fair and Organizations Showcase
Saturday, March 28, 2015

Chelmsford's annual Organizations Fair is a chance for adults and teens to speak with reps from over 30 organizations about volunteer and membership opportunities. Volunteer work is always a plus for your resume or college application, and many local organizations could not survive without help from the community!

If you've been wanting to contribute to the Chelmsford community, have special skills, or just want to stay active, stop by the Senior Center this Saturday.

Visit the library's website for more information. Also, check out http://www.chelmsfordvolunteers.org for a calendar of volunteer events and a searchable list of local volunteer organizations.

This event is sponsored by the Chelmsford Library and the Chelmsford Senior Center.
