Volunteer Week 2018

i Mar 18th No Comments by

April is National Volunteer Month. Join us for Thomas County’s very own Volunteer Week, April 21-28, 2018. Volunteer Week is a celebration of service and all the volunteers who help make good things happen in our community. During this annual event (always the week of the Rose Show & Festival), we’ll have select volunteer opportunities (of course!), volunteer “shout-outs”, and Appreciation Stations at select businesses around town. THANK YOU to all of our volunteers who make this such a great community to be a part of! Take a look at what we’re planning and check back for updates!

 Be sure to check our events calendar throughout the week and  join us on Facebook for new opportunities, updates and “shout-outs”.

 Thank you, Thomas County, for being a community that volunteers!
