Like many of you, I too attended the annual meeting and heard from our LAIA board members about the various committees and programs that compose the voluntary management of our organization. What I’ve come to learn recently is how small that group of volunteers is, and how much they need our help.
Many, many residents have been involved in the past, and for your years of service to Loch Alpine, thank you!
Still, the number of current volunteers is extremely small -- about 5% of the community -- and, I think, surprising, particularly given how fiercely people feel about the potential changes in our community.
This email is a call to action: the board needs your help.
This is a chance to involve your family and friends. For example:
· Those NHS high school students need volunteer hours; can your student write a neighbor profile or help with a project?
· Have a neighbor that likes fishing? Team up to volunteer together on the lakes committee!
What you get for it:
· Gratitude from your neighbors
· A sense of pride in your community
· A better understanding of the inner workings of Loch Alpine
· More neighborhood friends and connections
· Not having to read this email again if no one signs up
Are you afraid to raise your hand for fear of being overcommitted? Don’t be. There are plenty of smaller projects. The more people respond, the easier this is – and the more fun.
So please, email firstname.lastname@example.org and get more information!
