Volunteerism is part of my life. My work as a campaign staffer for a local judge ended with the November election cycle. But my volunteerism for the upcoming Genghis Khan exhibit continues. Work began in early summer and the pace is quickening. My attendance at two meetings within eight days will be the springboard into an increasingly busy schedule starting in January. It felt natural to seek out this opportunity at a regional center for the arts. Having actually spent time in Mongolia as part of a humanitarian medical team it seemed appropriate to seek to be part of the leadership team to bring an army of three hundred volunteers into rank for a wonderful exhibit. The fact that I step out of bed onto a small rug with the face of Genghis Khan might also influence this choice. smile But in actuality, I love beauty. Whether it is symphony, big band, theater, dance or museum exhibits - beauty feeds the soul.
Volunteerism brings much richness to my life. Although it can be cast as civic duty, in reality, the joy lies in being able to give back to America. We are good people and the quality of kindness embedded within our national character cannot be denied. Each volunteer opportunity gives me the chance to form friendships with other caring members of the community. It reinforces my belief that America is the greatest nation on earth.
As one of four team leaders let me make a small appeal. Should you live in the Dallas Fort Worth area, we are still in need of a few good citizens to make this exhibit a success! You will find information on the link below.
