Get involved in your community

Over the last week I have made the effort to go to several meetings involving area clubs, groups or agencies. One of the things I enjoy about the newspaper business is having the opportunity to meet and work with so many good people throughout the communities I have lived in who have a vested interest in doing whatever they can to continue to improve their towns.
The four communities we serve here in Oklahoma are much like other communities in the U.S. Generally this means that there is a small group of dedicated people who work, in part, behind the scenes to make community events happen. One of the things I have noticed in my travels is that many of the participants in these groups are the same people, good samaritans who enjoy giving freely of their time and industry. Some people are just dedicated to serving and they join and participate in a variety of community activities to try to improve the lives of everyone.
