The Baldwinsville Volunteer Recruitment Fair will offer one-stop shopping for those who want to better serve their community. Sponsored by the Baldwinsville Volunteer Center, it will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday April 30 at the Baker High School cafeteria.
More than 25 different local community services will be at the fair, telling the stories of their organization’s work and how fairgoers can contribute their time or talents to making a difference.
