Day 4: National Day of Community Service

Do you volunteer, or do anything in your community?

I was pondering this question, and thinking that I didn’t do anything. I don’t run any events, and I just resigned from the Village Hall Committee because I have too much on my plate right now.

But then I remembered, I do volunteer.

I edit and compile the parish magazine, which goes out to 350 households in our three villages.

Sometimes it feels like a bit of a chore, I’ll be honest.

But actually, I really enjoy it. It feels good to create something that helps out local folk, and it’s a chance to tell people’s stories.

Set a timer, and write about community service: do you do any? Have you in the past? Will you in the future? Why or why not?
