When I was younger I was involved in many competitive sports. Now one of my favourite activities is volunteering with the Blues Lacrosse Club. I have helped on the floor with coaching, acted as treasurer and recently was promoted to president. The daily grind can take its toll and volunteering for the club gives me a positive outlet to give back to my community and role model volunteering for my daughters. My advice to a new volunteer is to find something important to you. There are small and large volunteer commitments, find one that is enjoyable to you. Get out and give your time, it feels good.
