Change starts here.
Right here on your street, at your workplace, in your community.
Lunenburg County is changing into a strong and vibrant community. This is only made possible because someone or a few people saw the possibilities in trying something new, righting a wrong, fulfilling a need or satisfying a want.
It’s easy to participate in your community when you feel passionate or knowledgeable about a cause and participating is very rewarding – even the smallest efforts can make a big difference!
There are numerous ways to get involved, to make a difference, to change a life or lives, to bring out the best in communities and people.
If you don’t feel very connected or are new to our community start by reading your local Progress Bulletin newspaper. Here local issues and opportunities are discussed and brought to the forefront, many stories have contact or organization names. Read the letters to the editor for discontent, but see the seeds and opportunity for positive change. Look at the Community Focus section to see what special events are coming up or what our many service clubs are up to. Chances are many of these community events and projects are powered by volunteers and could use your skills, ideas, commitment and passion.
You can also talk with the Lunenburg Queens Volunteer Navigator, whose job is to connect you to volunteer opportunities in our community. If you are having trouble connecting with your passion or the community, the Volunteer Navigator can help.
