Welcome!

 

Fairfax Volunteers is a town-sponsored group whose mission is to foster good will in the Town of Fairfax. We plan events and undertake projects to strengthen the community, improve town safety and awareness, and to make living in Fairfax special. Volunteers not only help the community, but we meet our neighbors, make new friends, and have a lot of fun!

Please join us at 10:00 a.m. for our annual creek clean-up to help Fairfax keep our creek free of litter and other debris. By pitching in to clean the creek every year, you can help prevent flooding in town.

As we collect debris, Mia will be telling us about the plant and wild life that lives in our local creeks. Check out Mia’s work at www.vildafoundation.org. 

We will be walking in the creek, so wear water shoes and be prepared for mud!
