Nearly 100 people showed up at the volunteer fair last week that took place at the Prescott Valley Public Library.

The Town of Prescott Valley hosted the event with hopes that many citizens would sign up and fill the many needs within town departments. The town's police, library and parks and recreation departments seek volunteers year-round.

The library's Crystal Room featured a table representing each town department and various staff manned the tables, handing out volunteer descriptions.

"I've been retired for a while and moved to Prescott Valley about a year ago," said Catherine Keith moments after she wrote her name on the sign-in sheet. Keith said she was just checking things out to see if she would be interested in the many volunteer positions.

Potential volunteer John Harris said he wanted to attend the fair to get out of the house and do something.

Crime Prevention Officer Nancy Roberts said there is no limit to the number of volunteers the police department will accept. "We have a lot of needs to fill," Roberts said.

According to Communications Relations Coordinator Heidi Dahms Foster, the police department gained several interested applicants with prior law enforcement experience.

In addition, the library received interest from individuals wanting to volunteer with tutoring and literacy instruction.

Also, the Prescott Valley Court received some much-needed sign-ups for its digitizing project designed to help staff clean up and archive old records.

"Were hoping to help people see what great volunteer opportunities are available with the town," Dahms said.

She added that volunteerism within the town saves taxpayer dollars and encourages people to engage in their community.

According to the town's Website, Volunteer Central provides a one-stop overview of all volunteer positions currently available for consideration. Formore information, visit www.pvaz.net and click on the "I want to" link at the top of the main page, then click on the volunteer dropdown button.
