Volunteerism

 

One of the things that impressed me most when we moved to the County was the amount and diversity of volunteer activity.  It seems that as soon as a need is identified, people get together and figure out how to address that need.

 

Whether it is environmental protection, heritage, the arts or just running the Town Hall and Mount Tabor, the willingness of folks to organize and help out is nothing short of remarkable.

 

Prince Edward County is a great example of residents not expecting governments to do everything for them, and nowhere is that more evident than in South Marysburgh. There is no better way to keep taxes down than by adopting a made to measure do it yourself approach.

 

Due to my keen interest in the environment, I have become involved in several organizations which focus their efforts on our very special South Shore – PECFN, CCSAGE, PEPtBO, APPEC.

 

As your Councillor, I will continue to promote volunteerism in an even greater array of endeavours.
