Volunteering and Service

This past week, I was able to attend the National Conference on Volunteering and Service in New Orleans.  More than 4600 people attended the conference from all over the country, and all walks of life.  It was wonderful to see so many people come out in support of volunteers and the work that they do.  Both the mayor of New Orleans and the Governor of Mississippi expressed their heartfelt thanks for all of the work volunteers did to repair the region post-Katrina. Hearing stories of how volunteers have come together in their communities during times of need reminded me how lucky we here at LPCS are to continue to be supported by such an amazing community.  So a big thank you to all of our volunteers and supporters! 

The best part of the conference, learning that the Windy City is the host site for next year's conference!  Congrats on the honor Chicago!
