Volunteer Opportunities Fair for All Ages - Sept 17th
Volunteer Center of Burlington County's Civility Project celebrates August as National Civility Month. Annually beginning on August 18th, and leading up to September 11th, we make a daily Facebook/Twitter postings from P.M. Forni's book - Choosing Civility: The Twenty-Five Rules of Considerate Conduct. There is no better way to remember and reflect upon 911 then to reaffirm our national commitment to a more civil society. Dr. Forni writes . “Civility is an essential ingredient for enhancing the quality of personal and community life. The lack of Civility violates the very spirit and intent of volunteerism”
