Shawnee Lions Club Vice President Joe Freeman, left, greets Master Gardener Tom Terry, who spoke to the club about community volunteering opportunities. Projects abound in Shawnee for people to help, including the upcoming International Finals Youth Rodeo, Habitat for Humanity, Salvation Army, Family Promise, Mission Shawnee, beautification efforts and many others, Terry said. People volunteer knowing that many working together can achieve a greater result, he said, and because there is social prestige in volunteering, opportunity to gain new friends and often because their parents set a good example of community involvement.
