Volunteers

Volunteers Needed
By Coralee Nockles

FOS is the place to be for friends and fun and activity.
There’s parties and concerts and clubs galore, golfing and movies and so much more!
But sometimes things can go unplanned if there’s not enough folks to lend a hand.
So how about you join the fun by helping out to “get ‘er done”?
You’ll make new friends (that’s how it works) and sometimes you acquire perks!
So send me a note if you agree to give some of your time for free.
The investment is small, the return is great; Now ask yourself, “why would I wait?”
Yes, we need volunteers to help out with various activities throughout the year.

If you’re interested in getting involved, making a difference, and connecting with our community,
please send me an email at ckninaz@gmail.com
