Bay Cares event showcases volunteer opportunities

Bay Villagers know that our city is a wonderful place to live, play and raise a family. There’s the beautiful lakeside setting, the friendly people and the small-town feel. Part of the community’s charm are the many residents who volunteer their time with civic groups, clubs and foundations dedicated to maintaining the Bay Village way of life.

If you’re looking to spend a little of your free time giving back to the community, Bay has a group to fit almost any interest. In fact, it can be daunting to research all of them and decide which one(s) to choose.

The Observer and the Bay Village Branch Library are partnering to bring civic organizations and interested volunteers together. On Saturday, Oct. 4, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. at the library, the Bay Cares Fall Fest will feature representatives from Bay-based groups with a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for all ages.

Do you love dogs, cats or snakes? How recycling, reading, biking, gardening, Scouting, voting, writing? Are you a veteran or the descendant of one?

On a beautiful fall day, you can learn about more than 20 non-profit organizations that help make Bay the special community it is.

This indoor/outdoor event will also feature kids’ crafts, live music and free doughnuts from the DonutLab food truck.

Come alone or bring the family and find out how you can give back to the community and meet friendly people, all while doing something you enjoy!
