Wherever we live, whether Atlanta or British Columbia, we all have our own perceptions of “community.”
Usually, these perceptions are formed by the concrete reality of the world immediately around us. It may be a bustling metropolis, a town, a tiny village, a large county, a broad rural area.
It is the place we call home – with all its good and bad features, its beauty and ugliness, its strengths and weaknesses. Every individual has a voice in shaping the world around him, and every individual can make that voice heard.
We will make our voice heard in our community.
We will do more than throw up our hands in despair over what’s wrong with the world.
Our community offers limitless opportunity for action that can be seen, felt and judged for its true worth.
We will look for something that’s needed and workable in our community – fight poverty, aid individuals with intellectual disabilities, plant a tree, sponsor a blood pressure screening, support law enforcement, campaign for every baby’s right to life, help the aged – whatever our community’s needs, our members’ interests and our council’s resources allow.
No matter what we choose... we will get involved!
