Volunteers and Help Needed:
There are several areas that we could use the help of volunteers. We are also looking for new members to join the Freedom Booster & Rec Comm., The Dirigo Grange #98 and The Freedom Community Historical Society. I realize many people don’t like to make a commitment to any organization, and if that’s the reason you hesitate to join, maybe you can find the time to volunteer some of your time sometimes.
The Rec. Comm. will start off the month of October with our annual Halloween party for the youngsters on October 23, in November we will have our annual Veteran’s Day program on November 11 and in December, Meet the Grinch Christmas Craft Fair on December 10. We will appreciate those of you who would like to come and help us decorate, etc. Giving you plenty of time to think about it.
If you would like to decorate a place in the building, you can start on October 11, while the office if opened and must be finished by October 19, 2016. The building is locked therefore it will be safe to leave your decoration’s there.
