A Sincere Thank You… From the Director of the Chamber!
Please take a moment to think about our community, where we live, work and play… Each of those aspects are benefited by our Non-Profit organizations, and the time and effort of the volunteers that support them.
The Oscoda-AuSable population includes hundreds of residents that are associated with the hundred + non-profit organizations in our community. Does that number seem high?? Call anytime and request a directory! Chances are, you know someone that has volunteered their time to benefit the community, without asking for anything in return.
Aside from responding to those in need, they also engage in economic activities that boost the level of disposable income in our community. They step in and take accountability where setbacks cause disconnect. Their presence attracts resources from out of state, like federal grants. They help to facilitate the attraction of businesses, downtown district, parks and highways. Whether in education, recreation, health, environment or business development, all individuals working as a collaborative with our community Non-Profits impact our lives in a positive way.
If it hasn’t yet occurred to you how vital the volunteers of organizations are,or seen first-hand evidence of their indisputable impact, take an hour to walk a mile in a volunteer’s shoes.
To all of our Volunteers, THANK YOU for bettering our community.
