Thanks for the following contribution from SCCAP Circles Coordinator Bonnie Vesely:
The Monroe County Circles™ Initiative warmly welcomes one of our new AmeriCorps Volunteer Managers! Nicholas McLain began serving with Circles™ on June 2nd.
He is already hard at work building our online presence and making many community contacts as part of his volunteer recruitment effort. He is also bringing organization to our Youth Program. Nick is a journalist with degrees in Journalism and Political Science, who was schooled at IU- Bloomington, and formerly wrote news, sports, columns and even movie reviews for the Mooresville-Decatur Times. He has great tech skills, and we are grateful that he is getting us connected!
Nick is an animal lover, particularly enjoying dogs, and has worked at kennels. In his spare time he likes to visit pet stores, play with his dogs, hang out with his brother and friends, as well as play basketball, golf and tennis. A true renaissance man, he also loves to read!
Please contact Nick at 339-3447, ext. 263 if you’d like to volunteer with the Circles Youth Program, to prepare, serve and cleanup meals with a group of your friends at a weekly Circles Community meeting, or as a Circles Community Ally – he is eager to hear from you. You can also contact Nick if you would like to schedule a presentation on Circles™ for your faith community, service club or other group.
The other half of the Americorps Volunteer Management Team, Thomas Henning, begins serving on July 1st : look for news about Thomas on this blog!
