Ruth Levins, who writes the ‘Volunteer’ column for the Citrus County Chronicle said it best: “Observe any volunteer and you’ll see the ‘plus factor’ at work – the achievement level that Norman Vincent Peale describes as ‘that little extra that makes us a winner’”. You are invited to experience this unique opportunity - volunteering at the Old Courthouse Museum, Historical Society, and the Coastal Heritage Museum or at one of our many special community events. Volunteer commitment is well worth the rich reward of providing service in the community.
