The fire tower lookout program will be just one of many organizations recruiting volunteers at the April 22 fair. (File photo)

Are you looking for something interesting and fulfilling to do with some of your spare time?

The Association of Mountain Volunteer Organizations is giving you the opportunity to meet with representatives from two dozen volunteer groups so you can get involved with your friends and neighbors from Crestline to Green Valley Lake.

The volunteer recruiting fair will take place on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the San Moritz Lodge in Crestline.

If you have ever wondered what it takes to work in a fire lookout tower? Or have you wondered what those folks in the sheriff’s Citizens on Patrol cars do? If you enjoy looking up at the clear mountain skies, the Mountain Skies Astronomical Society may have just the spot for you.

Whatever your interests, there’s sure to be a group with something to offer you.

There will be door prizes (winners do not have to be present to win) and LifeStream will have a bloodmobile on site; donors should preregister at LStream.org.
