Hi everyone, it has come to my attention that people cannot see who is posting from the Volunteer Center. FYI, this is Kevan Boeder.
To keep you in the loop, my intention is to have a web presence and making volunteer connections by the end of this year! Mid January is my goal for rolling out our new platform and partnership with the Tri-City Area United Way.

Hello everyone! I would like you to know that in the near future the Volunteer Center will be re-inventing itself. Look for a collaboration with the Tri-City Area United Way, and look for great things ahead!

The Volunteer Center in Marinette County would like to extend a hearty thank you to the Volunteer Center of Brown County! They were kind enough to take time out of their busy day yesterday to allow us to tour their operations and 'pick their brains' about their best practices and how best to build our capacity in Marinette to be the best Volunteer Center we can be...! Thank you to Christine, to the staff, and to the volunteers of the Volunteer Center of Brown County. Additionally, we would also like to say congratulations to Christine Danielson, the Executive Director, as she is on her way to retirement after an illustrious time with the Volunteer Center of Brown County. All the best to you, Christine!

The Volunteer Center's HELP Program is happy to be partnering with the Guardians of the Garden initiative again this year. Last year's Garden was a smashing success! This is a GREAT program, and all good programs need volunteer assistance. The initiative works with 'at-risk' youth in Menominee. The youth learn a short educational lesson and then apply the lesson into the real-world settings at the garden in Duby Park. The youth plan, plant, work, and harvest the garden from spring until fall. Last year the youth also volunteered with other youth agencies, participated in Days of Volunteering, and donated many of the food items to local food pantries. There will be a kick-off meeting for this year's garden on Wednesday, March 19th at 4:30 pm at 1812 Hall Ave. If you or anyone you know is interested in volunteering outside, have an interest in gardening, may even have experience with child development/education, or have worked with children in the past...this is an excellent volunteer opportunity for you! If you are interested in participating, but unable to make the meeting on the 19th, please call (715) 587-3351 for more information on getting involved!
