Carr’s Landing Association in need of volunteers

Dedicated group is looking for new blood to help with community events in Carr's Landing

A  long established Okanagan volunteer group is looking for new members to help with events and initiatives in the Carr’s Landing ward of Lake Country.

The Carr’s Landing  Community & Recreation Association is the voice of Carr’s Landing with the purpose to preserve and enhance the amenities in the Carr’s Landing area. If you are a resident of Carr’s Landing in Lake Country, the Carr’s Landing Community & Recreation Association would love to hear from you.

The group says they are faced with dwindling numbers, as busy lives, work pressure, and time poverty affect peoples’ spare time.

The association has forthcoming events in the area this summer and they would like to hear from anyone willing and interested in helping out, as a volunteer or as an organizer.

Some projects could involve a small amount of time over a short period, others may take more time, over a longer period, but you can select the activity that most interests you, that fits with your personal available time, and with a commitment with which you feel comfortable.

You may also see this as an opportunity to enlist your friends or neighbours to participate with you.

The group has a strong and dedicated core group of members with over 100 years of combined experience in the volunteer and community sector, but they need new membership and community involvement in order to continue to improve the quality of residents’ lives.

“Community involvement plays a huge part in improving the quality of life, helps knit communities together, forges friendships, keeps residents aware of local issues, reduces crime, and provides a sense of personal satisfaction for volunteers,” states a release from the Carr’s Landing association.

The following opportunities arise for anyone interested in helping out or taking a lead in these areas.

No prior volunteer experience is necessary:

Events

•Family themed events

•Recreation, amenities, cleanup, hiking/dog walking groups

•Community/social

•Crime/neighbourhood watch

•Sponsorship and fundraising

•General volunteers
