October's Overflowing with Opportunities
As I was searching HandsOn Connect just now, looking for opportunities to share in our October eNews, I was struck by all the awesome activities occuring in October.
I was also struck by a sense of urgency, as most of these occur before or very close to the time our eNews will be hitting inboxes and there are so many great ways to help the community that need to be shared.
If there's a better reason to highlight our Opportunity Calendar right here and now, I can't think of it!
Many of these are perfect for groups: co-workers, families, youth groups
11th - RePlanting Cheseboro Park - replacing ash trees lost to insect damage
13th - Many activities are occuring surrounding the County-Wide Food Drive - a great for groups!
18th - Join Senior Neighbors and give a helping hand to seniors in need of yard work assistance
20th - Highland Park Tree Planting and Clean-up - extending the tree canopy in the park
20th - Annual Harvest Festival at Blandford Nature Center
21st - Informational Tour for volunteers interesting in serving at Crash's Landing
I hope you'll check out these great opportunities and get yourself (and your group!) involved this October!
