School is out and the time is right for getting tegether with friends and family over backyard barbeques and swimming at the community pool. But time moves quickly, so take the time to make some plans so that you can take full advantage of your summer break this year!
Give Back! There are so many ways to give back to the community and volunteering is a wonderful way yo can spend your time and do good, too. And it does you good as well! In our Summer 2012 issue of THE HUB Magazine (page 20) there is an article about how volunteering offers a person many benefits, including improved health, increase self-esteem and self-confidence, the satisfaction of feeling needed and valued, and the chance to meet new people. See the list of websites that can help you find a great volunteering opportunity.
