The Centre, The Rolla Chamber of Commerce and Brewer Science Host Rolla Area Volunteer Fair
Sep 19, 2005
The Centre was the site for the second Rolla Area Volunteer Fair held on August 25, 2005, from 2 PM to 6 PM. During that time those interested in local volunteer opportunities were able to visit with nearly forty local participating volunteer groups and organizations. Representatives from the volunteer organizations were available to answer questions regarding each organization and its needs. Approximately 300 visitors used the opportunity to view exhibits and to learn about the various volunteer needs in our community. Fraternities and sororities from the University of Missouri-Rolla campus also took advantage of the event to help determine future projects.
The Red Cross, The Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce, The Centre and Brewer Science donated attendance prizes for the event. Brewer Science and The Centre provided refreshments during the fair. This event is one example of business and the community working together to provide information and create awareness.
Brewer Science, The Centre and The Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the community for its strong support of this event. We are pleased and grateful because many of the participating organizations immediately acquired new volunteers.
