ALBION – A volunteer fair on April 7 will give residents a chance to meet with local organizations to see where they can fit and serve to help the groups with their mission in the local community.

At least seven organizations have already committed to being at the fair at Hoag Library from 2 to 4 p.m. and more are welcome. Groups unable to be there in person can be part of a volunteering directory.

The volunteer fair is being organized by the Albion Rotary Club. There also will be a cake available celebrating the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Club. Other service organizations are welcome to attend the volunteer fair and promote membership in their clubs.

For more information about being part of the volunteer fair, contact Albion Rotary through its Facebook page or email Robert Batt at rpb23@cornell.edu.

“So many Orleans County organizations are able to have the impact they do because our friends and neighbors are willing to volunteer and contribute,” said Batt, who is executive director of the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Orleans County. “We hope this event and the volunteer opportunity directory will be a good way to help connect those looking to help and organizations looking for a hand.”

Some of the organizations that have committed to being at the fair so far include Community Action, the Cobblestone Museum, Supportive Care of Orleans (Hospice), Cornell Cooperative Extension, American Legion, Orleans County YMCA and Albion Rotary.
