Call for Volunteers – Spring 2013

Over the years many of you have either worked with the JHBG or said you would like to volunteer on your membership applications. We are reorganizing some of our activities and need people with varied skills to help the JHBG Board of Directors continue to improve the quality of life in our neighborhood, as we have done now for 25 years.

Please review this list, and, if you see something you can help with, please contact us via our contact form. The Director in charge of that activity will contact you with more information.
