Volunteers Needed!
Volunteers make Specialized Recreation programs possible!  We are looking for additional volunteers to help out with our Specialized Recreation activities. Our volunteers help out with Special Olympics, social programs, camping trips, summer day camp, parties and events and classes.  

During the past year, we've had an increase in volunteers from the local colleges and the community. We are very thankful for their support!
