– Albert Camus
•Volunteer to participate in the democratic process. Do your part for country, state, and local community by becoming a poll worker. It takes only one day at a time, and volunteers are only needed when there is an election.
•Do you have a skill to share like giving massages, doing manicures or pedicures, styling hair? An agency needs your help at a special event Aug. 2, at Shoreline Park. You could also help serve a cancer survivor meal and help with general running of the event.
