Volunteers have been the backbone of this community for decades. Our civic groups, churches and youth organizations have allowed our community to be an exceptional place to work and live. Our school programs are receiving accolades and we are seeing an influx of new residents to our area thanks in part to the many opportunities available for enrichment activities and entertainment. In the spirit of Volunteer Appreciation month, we’d like to highlight some of the great activities coming up that our local volunteers make happen.
Just this past weekend, the Kiwanis Club of Chesaning sponsored the annual Kids Spring Sucker Fishing Tournament, a great family-friendly event that helps build a love of outdoor activities. This coming weekend our local youth can enjoy two Easter Egg Hunts, provided by both the Chesaning Lions Club in Showboat Park and Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in the park located at their church and school. Also, on the Community Calendar are events including the St Peter Parish Spring Fling Bingo, National Day of Prayer Breakfast, the Chamber Scholarship Golf Outing, and the “Weekend in the Country” Shopping Festival at the fairgrounds. All of these activities are volunteer-driven, benefit our community and support our hard-working non-profit organizations.
