MERA Volunteers

MERA depends on volunteers! We always welcome people with some time to offer. The Schoolhouse was renovated by volunteers and is presently maintained and run by the generosity of people who donate their time, with the assistance of a part time administrator and a part time caretaker.
 
MERA sustains itself only with help from the community. Volunteers at MERA work in various areas including fundraising, promotions, construction, gardening and kitchen wizards for special events.
 
Our members have found volunteering a great way to learn new skills, meet new friends, and gain experience that enhances our community.
 
Please let us know, on your membership application, how you would like to become involved - and thank you!
