It’s early Sunday morning and I arrive at the home of Rich and Joanne Porter for another Town-wide Volunteer Day planning meeting. Other cars are pulling up and I’m grateful. I had changed the time of the meeting via a panicked email the day before and I knew that I had probably disrupted some plans.
New Scotland Town-wide Volunteer Day needs volunteers for Saturday, May 2. With over a dozen projects reaching from the village of Voorheesville to Feura Bush and places in between, we need volunteers to commit to helping make the day a success.
The melting of snow each spring brings a sense of joy back to town, and also uncovers debris and disrepair once hidden beneath the icy blanket. For many members of our community, especially the elderly, the required maintenance of spring-cleaning is simply unmanageable alone.
