The annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is our way of saying thank you to our neighborhood’s many incredibly generous volunteers. Timbergrove residents give their time for many of the activities and programs that we have all come to count on – our block captains, the Citizens on Patrol program, Timbergrove Manor sponsored event volunteers, the beautification committee, our neighborhood parks volunteers, the various committee chairmen and committee members along with our Civic Club Board of directors.
This year’s dinner was held at Spaghetti Western – The Sequel on 18th Street. Honorees in attendance had their choice of one of four entrees along with bread sticks a salad and dessert along with their favorite soda or iced tea.
Along with tickets pulled to award door prizes, centerpieces were given to everyone else in attendance so that no one went home empty handed. With laughter abounding, visiting and great conversation, new friendships begun, it was a terrific event with almost forty people in attendance!
If you ever thought about volunteering, there is no better time than now! Volunteers are in short supply and always needed for many positions. Read this issue of The Timbergram and review the committees section with names of committees, committee chairmen and e-mail addresses. Does it seem to you like you’d fit in great somewhere? Contact us by writing to the one of the committee chairmen.
