Our Village has had to suspend the usual indoor activities due to the indoor safety restrictions needed under COVID 19. Some of our seniors are not comfortable with computers and we need activities that are not virtual, but can be done safely and either outdoors, by car or in their home.

  • Work with Village members to organize activities based on their interests.
  • Assure that new and ongoing activities are publicized in the newsletter and activity calendar
  • Work with Village Council members and other teams as necessary
  • Work from home with occasional meetings with Village members and volunteers

This team member must be over 18, have enthusiasm for setting up activities for seniors, a basic knowledge of current office programs (e.g., Word and Excel), and good organizational skills. A background check is required.
