Folly Civic Club July Update

Greetings Sandspur readers, and Happy 4th of July!  Our scheduled meetings will return September 19th.  Until then, we will keep you updated with the Sandspur, our Facebook page, and our new website Follycivicclub.org.  Planning for Halloween ramps up in the summer, so if you are interested in volunteering, please reach out. 

On that note – Civic Club has two opportunities to get involved: we are currently seeking a Secretary and Sandspur Editor.  Secretary is a board position, requires minimal time commitment, and is greatly appreciated and necessary per our bylaws.  Duties include attending board meetings (same day as meetings, just an hour prior to meeting start time), taking meeting minutes and managing the membership list.  The Sandspur Editor position is a stipend position and creates the monthly Sandspur from start to finish.  This is something that can easily be taught over a few months alongside one of our longtime Editors/Volunteers.  Additionally, we have a Sandspur Committee that can assist with tasks as needed.  The Sandspur is a tiny, but mighty monthly newsletter.  Creating the Sandspur is truly giving back to our community and keeping a longtime Folly tradition ongoing.  

Just to highlight a few lines from the Civic Club mission statement:  to promote acquaintance, friendship and fellowship as an opportunity for service; to encourage and foster the ideal of service; to provide the opportunity for its members to be of service to youth, those less fortunate, and the community; to promote good citizenship in every way …. Perhaps this inspires you to volunteer in one of these positions or to join the Civic Club?  Hope everyone is having a delightful summer, and as always, please reach out with needs, questions, comments!  See you soon!
