It Takes Great People to Be A Great Village – We Need You!
by Mayor Ron Hirth
My firm belief is that it takes diverse people of varying positions, backgrounds and opinions to make our Village the great place to live that it’s meant to be. With that in mind, various groups operate in the Village that thrive not only through the work of our elected officials and employees, but also through the work of volunteers who participate through various projects and with the democracy in Village government. Here are some opportunities to volunteer or get involved:
Council Committees – Limited opportunities are available to be appointed as a resident member on select Council committees to work along side elected officials in providing a resident’s perspective on issues important to our community. Overall, council committees conduct in-depth discussions then make recommendations to Council on various legislative issues. If you have an interest in serving on a committee, please contact me directly at email@example.com.
Recreation – The Golf Manor Recreation Commission sponsors and produces great community events throughout the year that are the perfect way for residents to meet neighbors and have some fun. The Recreation Commission conducts a monthly public meeting at 7 pm on the 3rd Monday of each month at the Municipal Building. Volunteering with the Recreation Commission is a great way to get involved in the community, have fun and make new friends. You can volunteer to work a singular event or get as involved as your time permits – it’s up to you. For more information about volunteer opportunities, please contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that participation in some events that are oriented to children requires a background check.
Concerned Citizen’s Block Watch Group – Mentored by the Golf Manor Police Department, the Concerned Citizens group is a resident block watch group composed of individuals in the community who want to make a difference in the Village. Monthly discussions take place about events in the community and sharing ideas for improving our neighborhood, safety, health and other matters of concern important to residents of the Village. Committee members are needed to help create and organize programming. They meet in the Municipal Hall at 7 pm on the fourth (4th) Tuesday of each month. If interested , just come to a monthly meeting or contact the Police Chief at email@example.com.
Garden Club – Throughout the Spring, Summer and early Fall months, several residents of the Village take an active role in helping our Service Department maintain the appearance of key areas of the Village that are focal points, enhanced through the maintenance and care of lanscaping and flower beds. The areas include the Municipal Buildling, our marquee Village signs, Volunteer Park on Wiehe Road and Memorial Park on Losantiville Avenue. If you have a green thumb and like to dig in the dirt and nurture nature, volunteering with this group may be ideal for you. If interested, please contact the Village Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re also looking for volunteers to help us maintain Chuck Harmon Field, our recreational softball field dedicated to long-time resident Chuck Harmon. Again, if you want to help with our “field of dreams,” let us know.
