Over fifty years ago, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stated in one of his speeches, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?” This week’s holiday honoring Dr. King is also known as a national Day of Service and here in our hometown, there are lots of opportunities to volunteer.
While our schools, library, fire companies, and service groups will always welcome your offer of time and talent, there are many other Montgomery-area organizations that could use your help. Like this one. The Sunnybrook Meadows Therapeutic Riding organization is looking for volunteers to work with children and adults with disabilities. Opportunities include assisting the instructor or therapist during a rider’s session, preparing the horses, stable care, special events assistance and fundraising. For more information, contact Teresa Bastress at 772-7666 or Edna Riddell at 547-1565 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
