Warren County Special Olympics
Warren County Special Olympics is practicing track & field every Monday and Wednesday nights starting May 2 at War Memorial Field from 6 to 7 p.m. Track & field will continue until June 1, with final competition on June 6. We need volunteers to run stop watches, use measuring tapes, record scores or just cheer for everyone. Consider volunteering in 2011 in one of our many sports programs and meet a great group of people. Time spent helping Special Olympics counts toward community service hours for your school, church or scouting project. For a complete schedule or any further information about volunteering for Special Olympics, please contact the Warren County Special Olympics Volunteer Coordinator, Gregg Heinold at 726-3218 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come join the fun!

Become a CASA volunteer and be rewarded with some of the most powerful and fulfilling experiences you can find. CASA is the only organization that empowers everyday citizens as appointed "friends of the court". Volunteers fit well with the court as the American Justice System is built on juries; a body of citizens sworn to give a true verdict according to the evidence presented in a court of law. In 1990 with the inclusion of the CASA Program in the Victims of Child Abuse Act, Congress affirmed the use of volunteers in our otherwise closed juvenile court systems and made provisions for the growth of our volunteer movement nationwide. Locally CASA of Warren and Forest Counties has 23 volunteers serving 23 children. Your involvement will make a direct impact on a child's life and perhaps generations to come. CASA of Warren and Forest Counties welcomes volunteers from all cultures, professions, ethnic and educational backgrounds. If you are interested in learning more about how you can help contact CASA of Warren and Forest Counties at 723-4434.
