The Volunteer Expo, featuring Mountain Area clubs and organizations, will be held 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., this Saturday, at the Oakhurst Community Center.
"The Volunteer Expo will provide community members a greater knowledge of the service clubs and organizations in our area and which ones they might be interested in joining," said Dottie Lee, chairperson of the event. "It will also provide information on the various fundraising special events that the clubs and organizations sponsor throughout the year."
Representatives from the following groups will be in attendance:

"We worked hard to put this together and need the community to come out to see how they can help and support the non-profit organizations within our community," Lee added.
"All the organizations struggle with keeping their membership up, and it is our hope that after seeing first hand what all these great clubs are about, community members will consider joining."
The event is free to the public and complimentary coffee and donuts will be available in the morning.
A $5 hamburger and hot dog lunch will be served at noon, and a $100 cash drawing will be held.
