LETTER: Volunteerism articles ‘some of the best’

-A A +A

I, as well as other readers, have appreciated the series about Spencer County services and volunteerism that Deanna Godman has written, including stories on the mentoring program at Spencer Elementary, the Spencer County Family Resource Center and the Life Long Learning Center.
I have learned more in the past months about what services and volunteer opportunities are available to our residents than I had been previously aware of.
The extra research and interviews with those involved have made these articles some of the best in The Spencer Magnet.
I hope there will be a follow-up piece to describe any increase in volunteers for these groups and what changes were necessary due to the reduced funding for the resource center.
Perhaps a column in the fall, when school is starting again, reminding us where volunteers and community involvement may be needed would be helpful.
Thank you for making our local paper a good one.
