Volunteer Opportunities

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, Gaiya Berube, gaiyan@yahoo.com who can put you in contact with the right person.
