Volunteers

Volunteers

Valuable is the work you do.
Outstanding in how you always come through.
Loyal, sincere and full of good cheer,
Untiring in your efforts throughout the year.
Notable are the contributions you make,
Trustworthy in every project you take.
Eager to reach your every goal,
Effective in the way you fulfill your role.
Ready with a smile like a shining star,
Special and wonderful - that's what you are.


Why be a Volunteer

Itís not for the money, itís not for fame
and itís not for any personal gain.
It's for love of fellow man,
Itís just to lend a helping hand.
Itís just to give the tithe of self.
Thatís something you canít buy with wealth.
Itís not the medals worn with pride.
It's just for that feeling deep inside.
Itís that reward down in your heart.
Itís the feeling that youíve been a part
Of helping others far and near,
That makes you a VOLUNTEER.


Ode to Volunteers

Many will be shocked to find
When the Day of Judgement nears
That there's a special place in
Heaven set aside for volunteers.
Furnished with big recliners,
Satin couches and footstools -
Where there's's no committee chair,
No group leaders for carpools.
Telephone lists will be outlawed,
But a finger snap will bring
Cool drinks and gourmet dinners,
And rare treats fit for a king.
You ask, who's serve the privileged few
And work for all they're worth?
Why, those who reaped the benefits
And not once volunteered on earth.


Hooray for Volunteers
(to the tune of "Hooray for Hollywood")

Hooray for volunteers
These extra super special volunteers
We couldn't copy without your smiling faces
And feel this place is
Great because you are here
Those tough jobs we wish
We could accomplish
You take on and do with the best of cheer
Hooray for volunteers
With you on board our troubles disappear
An any one of you will always come through
Each time we need you
To help us get the job done
We think the world of you
And of the job you do
Hooray for volunteers!
