FROM THE DIRECTOR
Volunteers Make Kingswood Run
by Cheryl Winship
As many of you know, but some may be learning, Kingswood is a nearly all volunteer run organization. Two key groups are managers and volunteers.
The year round administrator is a ¼ time paid position; the summer Program Director and Lifeguard are paid. Other than that, we are all volunteers. The site director, myself, is a volunteer role, as is the treasurer. All supplies are ordered by volunteers; all construction is done by volunteers; the maintenance of all the fields, trails, boat and swim areas, and campsites, yes that’s done by volunteers. too. If you are getting the idea that the volunteer group, all 200 of them, are proud of what they accomplish, you are right. Their efforts are what continue to make Kingswood affordable. In a world where the wealthy have great access to nature while others have less, Kingswood provides opportunity for all.
