Opportunities abound for getting involved in strengthening your community! See for yourself at the first annual Bastrop Volunteer Fair as you “shop” the 13 City Boards and Commissions and the more than 20 Bastrop area nonprofits that collectively shape a strong Bastrop. Representatives of each will be on hand for one-on-one conversation with you about how your talents, time and interests align with a particular group’s purposes, activities and needs. It’s a come-and-go event hosted by the City of Bastrop, and it’s your best opportunity to explore how each group fits into the larger effort of shaping a strong future and great quality of life for this community. Further details are available after July 1 online at www.cityofbastrop.org/volunteerfair and in the special mailing to residents of the City and nearby areas.
