By Louanne Issacson, Volunteer Coordinator
Deception Pass Park Foundation
When I took on the role of Volunteer Coordinator for the Foundation a little over a year ago, I had no idea what would come of it, or how I would convince people to dedicate a few hours a month helping wherever we can throughout the park. I must say, you amazed me. I have learned that it does not take much convincing when there is something for everyone. The beauty of having a park of this size to help care for and maintain, is the vast array of volunteer opportunities available that suits everyone.
I have had the privilege of witnessing our volunteers put forth the effort in whatever task they have signed up for, and what is more vital, is watching each of you enjoy the task you have chosen. Not only does your time matter, but also your dedication to the project of your choosing. Volunteering should not feel like work. It should be fun and enjoyable. You should walk away with a sense of pride at the end of the day knowing that because of you, others are able to enjoy our beautiful piece of heaven. I definitely feel that way and I hope you do as well. So, I am encouraging each of you to sign up for any one of our many volunteer opportunities; I am sure you will find one that interest you.
