Little things like this, that are just a matter of putting in a little extra time and effort and yes, before anyone says, well what did you do, I asked the Society if they could use a few pairs of extra hands and I was declined. I would love to volunteer some time around town “beautifying” our :Eden" I have even suggested the area in front of the new cruise ship dock, the hill that is covered in weeds, across from Mariners be seeded with wildflowers in the early spring and that offer was scoffed at.
Hmmm, not sure who you chatted with as far as volunteering your services, my understanding of the way things are here is that anyone that shows the slightest interest in volunteering is gobbled up instantly and held hostage for a few years, until the thought of volunteering is slowly drained from your body.
In other words, they’re so desperate for new help in a number of things in this town that it seems insane that anyone would turn you down.
Check back with someone else, I think Andree at one time was in charge of the work posse’s around town that tried to clean up things as best they could, I’m sure if you have a green thumb and are willing to as you say get some elbow grease working they’ll find a place for you. There’s the annual flowerbox campaign just as spring gets underway and the always in need of help out at the graveyard to try and keep it in some semblance of order.
It seems that in a lot of the volunteer groups, soccer, hockey, basketball etc, it’s always the same old folks year after year doing the best they can, hoping somebody else steps up and shares the load.
So keep plugging away there, somebody somewhere is going to take you up on your offer…
