O’LEARY -- Whether they track stats for the local ball team, deliver Meals on Wheels, raise funds for organizations and special causes in the community, or assist with any of the volunteer organizations in O’Leary, the O’Leary Community Council wants to say thanks.
Council decided during its January meeting to hold a volunteer appreciation night as a means of thanking volunteers for all they do. The event will be held at the O’Leary Legion on February 22 from 7 to 9 p.m. The legion is a sponsor for the special.
Council is still compiling a list of organizations and volunteer activities that are based in O’Leary and is hoping to fill the legion with volunteers. There will be finger foods, door prizes and entertainment.
A slide show of volunteer activities being carried out in the community is also being compiled for the occasion.
