Volunteers are involved in a variety of ways -- helping with clerical tasks, serving on boards, refereeing sports, assisting with speed control efforts, and serving as part-paid volunteers with the Fire Department. Contact individual departments for details.
All volunteer activities are unpaid, except for part-paid volunteer firefighter positions.
Further volunteer opportunities are available in the organizations the township helps to support – Hithergreen, Centerville-Washington Historical Society, Americana Festival and the Centerville-Washington Diversity Council.
Volunteers help keep the Township humming – whether they’re coaching youth sports, serving on a public board, tending a township garden, or helping with traffic control at an accident scene.
To recognize their contributions, Washington Township Trustees invited more than 150 volunteers to an April 2012 reception and trustee meeting.
“Volunteers share their skills generously with every department, helping with day-to-day tasks. Many important community events couldn’t take place without them,” notes Trustee President Scott Paulson. The annual Ice Cream Social, Americana Festival and Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast are presented almost solely by volunteer workers.
Volunteers also help set up displays and play Santa at Woodland Lights or assist with programs at Hithergreen and the historical society. Others represent the interests of residents on township boards such as Zoning Commission, Board of Zoning Appeals, Recreation Advisory Board, and Visual Improvement Program Committee.
“Volunteers are essential to a healthy community,” Paulson says. “They help develop a better community by building shared connections and also save taxpayers money through their contributions of time and talent.”
