BUPL SEEKS VOLUNTEERS!
The Bonnechere Union Public Library is seeking dedicated volunteers to help with our fundraising program. Tasks include getting oneself to and from the Pembroke Bingo Hall, clearing tables and general cleanup, and representing BUPL. BUPL can participate twice each month but frequency for our volunteers depends on their availability and the number of volunteers we have. Volunteer training is mandatory and will be provided. Proceeds from each Bingo evening are distributed to the not-for-profit organizations represented.
Should you be interested in participating and supporting your local library, please contact the library at 613-628-2400. This provides an important part of our fundraising revenue and you would be making a significant contribution to BUPL!
