Be the someone
December 5, 2019
There are so many activities, festivals and bazaars around the holiday season. Volunteers put in hundreds of hours to put on events for our communities.
We hear people say "someone should hold a parade" or "someone should take over the Huckleberry Festival," whose chairperson is stepping down.
The problem is, the someones seem to always be the same people. They are the movers and shakers who always step up and make sure things happen. You don't see all the work that goes into organizing a Christmas on Main Street or a youth soccer tournament.
People are quick to complain when things don't go as planned or aren't up to their expectations. We challenge people to step up and be the someones who make things happen. If more people take an interest and tasks are able to be spread to a larger group, these important community events that bring us together will remain strong for years to come.
