Volunteer Opportunities

We always look for ways to give back by volunteering within the community. If you’ve seen the beautiful painted walkway just in downtown, we’ve painted that!  We have also planted trees, helped out at the German Christmas Market and more.  We are really excited for 2022 and to see what fun things we can get up to.  We hope you will join us and get involved in our community!
