Volunteer Celebration for Middleburgh October 19th
Saturday, October 19th at 1:00p.m., the public is invited to a "Restoration Celebration" honoring the volunteers whose efforts have helped rebuild and renew the community. There is work still in process, but much to celebrate. Carol Coltrain, coordinator of volunteers shares that since the devastation of 2011, she has logged in 3,405 volunteers for a total of 25, 735 hours. "And these figures only begin to scratch the surface compared to the number of hours and volunteers both within the community and from elsewhere who have given of themselves, and have not registered their service." All involved in the planned Oct. 19 event feel it is time to celebrate how far the community has come since 2011, and that the best way to do that is to thank the volunteers responsible..
