My community is blessed with a large number of volunteers. These generous souls, in countless ways, add to the richness and variety of our lives here at Maples at the Sonatas. They work hard, and they work with smiles on their faces.
Here is a sampling of photos of our volunteers in action. Thanks also to those who help out in major ways but don’t happen to appear in any of these pictures.
Our social committee works 12 months a year to plan and run the parties and events that make up our social lives.
Our pool committee is dedicated to keeping our pool beautiful, safe, and inviting. Below, they are joined by other volunteers to close it at the end of the season. The committee is headed by Bob G., who appears (partly) at the right edge of the photo.
For the past three years, we have had one of the best displays of Christmas lights of any neighborhood in Woodstock. Volunteers put up this year’s lights a few days ago, again under the direction of Bob G, who didn’t get in this photo at all.
Here he is, Bob G., volunteer extraordinaire, helping put together our clubhouse Christmas tree last year.
Sometimes our volunteers see a project and step up to make it happen. These two gentlemen saw a need to better organize our storage closet to hold our growing number of folding chairs.
And sometimes, we come together in a community-wide effort. When two of our neighbors were involved in a horrendous car accident last month, more than 25 people volunteered to provide meals, rides, errands, and more. Here is my list of workers.
Thanks to everyone who pitches in to make this a great place to live!
