LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST - LIFE BEGINS AT 50
Lend a hand!

Volunteering is a way to meet new people and get involved in the community.

For opportunities at the Semiahmoo Museum or the Plover spring through fall, contact Richard Sturgill at 332-5742 with Drayton Harbor Maritime . To get involved with the community oyster farm or water quality improvement projects call Geoff Menzies at 384-9135.

Find out about becoming part of the Blaine Beautification Committee at city hall or join in a Birch Bay event through the Birch Bay Chamber of Commerce.

In the spring/summer, the Blaine Visitor Information Center has volunteer openings (332-4544). Volunteers are a big help to the senior center and Stafholt Good Samaritan Center as well.

Meals on Wheels means the difference between a hot dinner and crackers for many older county residents. To help out contact the Whatcom Council on Ageing at 733-4030.

The Whatcom Literacy Council has plenty of opportunities helping local adults learn to read. They are hosting a prospective volunteer tutor orientation Monday, April 1 at 7 p.m. The orientation will take place at Bellingham Technical College in Building G. No previous teaching or foreign language skills needed.

There are also plenty of volunteer opportunities at Blaine schools, from helping with reading to fundraising. Contact the district office at 332-5881 to learn about them.

To find out about the full spectrum of volunteer opportunities in the county and in Blaine, try calling the Whatcom Volunteer Center at 734-3055 or the Senior Information and Assistance network at 738-2500.
