Chatham Declares April As Volunteer Appreciation Month
The Chatham Township Committee recently recognized the hard work of its many volunteers when Mayor Curt Ritter declared April, ‘Volunteer Appreciation Month’.
In a proclamation that was read into the record, Ritter states “Chatham Township is blessed to have hundreds of volunteers, who deserve to be recognized for their hard work and dedication on behalf of our grateful community. These individuals volunteer thousands of hours each year, whether it’s serving as first responders, coaching youth sports, raising funds and awareness for our athletic programs, education and schools, or supporting our seniors, the environment, or serving our local government on a committee or board.”
Ritter states “Chatham Township recognizes that volunteering improves our quality of life, increases community participation and is one of the many reasons Chatham Township is a great place to live and raise a family. We are eternally grateful to the women, men and youth who utilize their time and talent to make a difference in the lives of others in our community.”
