A Salute to Volunteers

"I shall pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again."

-Mahatma Gandhi

No theme was set for this issue of Metro News, but as fate would have it, there are several articles on volunteerism. Therefore, we devote this issue to the volunteers who help the Alabama Cooperative Extension System continuously meet its goals and objectives. We salute you for the contributions that you have made over the years. Without your help, Extension would not be as successful in touching the lives of thousands of people across the state and around the world!

Thank you and best wishes in the New Year!

Wendi Williams
