O’LEARY -- Whether you coach a local ball or hockey team, sell 50-50 tickets in support of a local organization, deliver Meals on Wheels or volunteer in any other way in O’Leary, the Community of O’Leary wants to say thank you.
The Community of O’Leary is holding a Volunteer Appreciation Night this Saturday, February 22, 7 to 9 p.m. at the O’Leary Legion. Volunteers of all ages are welcome and refreshments will be provided.
Plans for an event to thank all the volunteers who contributed to the success of last summer’s Under 16 Girls National Fast Pitch Championship which was hosted by O’Leary quickly grew into an event to acknowledge everyone whose volunteer efforts help keep the community’s heart beating.
Gerald McNally is coordinating the entertainment for Saturday’s celebration of volunteers. Speakers will acknowledge the special service volunteers provide and there will be draws for door prizes.
