As National Volunteer Month comes to an end, I wanted to thank the thousands of volunteers who continue to make our communities so great. We are very fortunate to have men and women, boys and girls who give their time and energy.

Think about it. Our neighborhoods, recreation programs, schools, faith based organizations and nonprofits thrive and are successful because of volunteers. We all benefit because of their commitment and willingness to help others.

So, again, thank you to the wonderful volunteers for their contributions to our communities, county and state. You make our world better.
