1ST ANNUAL COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY & BBQ
THURSDAY AUGUST 27TH
The Town Offices will be closed to the public at 12:00 p.m. on Thursday, August 27 in order to provide an opportunity for Town employees and residents to participate in various community projects.
Support can be given in many different ways; actual labor, making food or serving refreshments to the workers.
Several projects around Town have been targeted for this year’s community service day. Many projects have already been organized, but please feel free to suggest additional projects. So far, the project sites include:
Our Service Day will close out with Town Employees, Elected and Appointed Officials joining together at 5:00 p.m. for a summer barbecue at the Chelmsford Lodge of Elks. On the menu are BBQ ribs & chicken, burgers & hotdogs, salads, corn-on-the-cob, watermelon & dessert. All are welcome, and tickets are $15.
For more information on volunteering or the barbecue, please contact:
Are you looking for interesting volunteer work?
Do you represent an organization that needs volunteers?
Any teens or adults looking to volunteer in the community are encouraged to attend to connect with local organizations and agencies that need help. Organizations who would like to have a display table should contact the Library's Community Services Department (firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-256-5521, ext. 109), or submit a registration form [pdf].
ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is a website designed to bring together people who are willing to lend a hand within the community with those organizations who have a need for volunteers.
The Chelmsford Library developed and sponsors it, but ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is really for the community to use and maintain. Organizations can submit their information and volunteer needs, and adults and teens of the town and search to find volunteer opportunities that fit their interests and abilities.
ChelmsfordVolunteers.org is actually two tools in one. First there is a calendar of upcoming events, at which people can volunteer their time. These can range from helping out at the Friends of the Library's book sale to setting up for the Lowell Folk Festival, and be for one hour at a time or an ongoing weekly schedule.
The second component is the Community Information Database, which is sponsored by the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium (MVLC). This database lists non-profit groups from all over the Merrimack Valley, and includes contact names and information, description of purpose, meeting times, and more.
If you're a volunteer, check out ChelmsfordVolunteers.org to find the volunteer opportunity that is right for you.
If you're an organization and would like to have your group and events listed, please use the event submission form or organization update form. Or, contact Kathy Cryan-Hicks at the Library at email@example.com or 978-256-5521 x109 with questions.Posted in Current News, Library Information, Resources | No Comments »
