TMCC Volunteer Appreciation Dinner
by Tim Louque, Activities Committee
The annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is our way of saying thank you to our neighborhood’s 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. Without them, neighborhood events and activities would not be possible.
This year’s dinner was held at Spaghetti Western – The Sequel on 18th Street. Our honorees in attendance had their choice of one of four entrees along with bread sticks, choice of salad, and dessert along with their favorite soda or iced tea.
Along with tickets pulled to award door prizes, the bell pepper and bedding plant centerpieces were given to everyone in attendance so that no one went home empty handed. This year, we were very excited to have two gift cards donated by S.E.A.L.S. They were the highlight of the night! With nearly forty people in attendance, great conversation, creating new friendships, visiting with friends, trading “war stories” and catching up since last year is what this sensational yearly event is all about.
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.
