  • LFW is looking for people who exhibit a desire to serve the community and who have some knowledge of our community’s issues and assets.
  • Please consider their past and present community involvement in civic and service organizations, interest in current issues, and goals for future involvement. Keep in mind that those new to the community may have less knowledge or experience in this area and that should not disqualify them.
