Looking for Volunteers at "Super Sign Up Saturday" in Sackets HarborPosted: Updated:
Twenty non-profit organizations looking to recruit volunteers set up shop in the municipal office building for "Super Sign Up Saturday." There were representatives and displays from Saint Andrew Catholic Church Altar & Rosary, the Red Hat Society, the Y and Samaritan Medical Center's Oncology Department.
"The North Country Support Group is looking for volunteers to join their cause and help other people going through cancer, it's a great group," said Jim Steggeman, Director of Oncology at Samaritan Medical Center,
Hay Memorial Library's director was there as well with some early learning tools the library uses in their new "Time For Tots" program. The library is looking for volunteers for that and other things as well.
"So we are always looking for volunteers to help us with programs, to help us maintain our collection or to help us at our circulation desk," Katie Male-Riordan, Library Director at Hay Memorial Library.
The mayor said the event is a great way for non-profits to share their mission with the public.
"Sackets Harbor Super Sign Up Saturday is an opportunity for our non-profit community organizations to share their missions, to recruit volunteers, to advertise their programs that they do all year long in Sackets Harbor," said Sackets Harbor Mayor Molly Reilly.
Over two dozen people showed up to socialize as they perused pamphlets, displays, and had a mini-donut courtesy of the fire department.
The mayor added that volunteers are vital to the tourist economy in Sackets Harbor because it's driven by volunteer organizations.
