New committee members are elected at the annual meeting each January. However, anyone interested can attend committee meetings, except for the Caring Committee since some of their business involves maintaining the confidentiality of the people they lovingly serve. Committees generally meet monthly; most meeting dates can be found on the calendar. Please contact a committee member if you would like to help.
