Celebrating National Volunteer Week!

As we celebrate National Volunteer Week (April 14, 2024 - April 20, 2024), we are filled with gratitude for the incredible individuals who generously give their time, skills, and energy to support our community. Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organization, driving positive change and making a profound impact on the lives of others. This week, we extend our deepest appreciation to each and every volunteer who has contributed to our cause.

We believe that everyone has something valuable to offer, and we invite you to join us in our mission to revitalize and grow our historic district. Whether you're passionate about preservation and the arts, or you're simply looking for a meaningful way to give back, there are countless opportunities for you to get involved.

At the OTCA, we offer a variety of volunteer roles to suit different interests and schedules. From hands-on work to committee planning, there's something for everyone to make a difference.
