Dear Friends of Weymouth,
This is YOUR Weymouth Center. In as much, we are often asking you for your monetary support and your time but it’s not all about what you can do for Weymouth.
What can Weymouth do for you?
What kinds of programming would you like to see or participate in?
In what type of activities would you get the satisfaction of being a volunteer?
Now that the center is opening for programs and events, we want to be the safe place for you, your family, friends and the whole community to come and enjoy. Let us know where you see a need that Weymouth could fill. It really takes a village, and your input and ideas are always welcome. Weymouth is your house too!
Yours for Weymouth,
Ashley Van Camp President, Friends of Weymouth Board of Directors
