Volunteers really are the heart and soul of small community and the development of this important resource is unfortunately overlooked too often. In many cases, in fact probably most cases, small rural communities cannot afford to compensate anyone for their time and efforts for projects or programs such as these. When a business finds it difficult to survive this is a great way to keep a community thriving and growing… possibly to such an extent where their children may move their families back. Volunteers with a passion for public service, truly find happiness in serving others. Rolling up our sleeves and placing effort into great ideas such as this one will be imperative across South Dakota for progress in rural development.
