Volunteer Opportunities

The most common sentiment you hear about OLM is that we are a wonderful community. There are so many social events, fundraisers and special programs that contribute to the OLM community. These efforts are volunteer-run and in need of additional volunteers. Below is a listing of the event, description and the chair if a commitment has been made. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact the chair or the PTG President who can put you in contact with the right person. Thank you for considering! No matter the amount of time you are able to offer it is very much appreciated!
