I serve on two non profit boards as well as being an active member in my local Lions Club organization. On top of that, there is typically other stuff throughout the year that I will volunteer for

Did 20 years for the local VFD. My wife and I were 4-h leaders when my son was in school. Loved every minute of it.

When we do a project for one of our own church members, we/church pays for the materials, but otherwise the Project office does. Local Sheriff's office provides the workshop and storage facilities for the pre-built modules and other materials needed. Some other volunteers and prisoners build the modules.

Most of my volunteer work right now is through ARES. We are a group of HAM radio operators that provides communications for major events, not profits and also during disaster recovery.

Texas Youth Hunting Program (TYHP): https://www.tyhp.org

These folks host over 200 youth hunts per year across the state. I recently volunteered as a hunting guide for a TYHP spot-and-stalk doe whitetail hunt at the 165K acre Pitchfork Ranch out in the panhandle. It was a great experience and most importantly the kids had a blast and learned a lot.

In addition to volunteering as a hunting guide, you can also volunteer as camp cook, supervise shooting activities, provide outdoor education, and just help make the hunts run smoothly. Give them a look.

I also volunteer a lot of time coordinating public policy efforts for the Texas Chapter of Backcountry Hunters & Anglers (BHA), a non-profit that advocates for hunter/angler access to our public lands and waters.

Was volunteered/nominated/tricked by a friend to sit on the board of a small trade association for cabinet makers. It's been 6 years and my term is up, now I'd like to find something else. I have 3 boys, but we dont do a lot of team sports, mostly outdoors stuff. I'd like to find another opportunity to volunteer atleast a few hours per month on something for them.

Back up in NY I am involved with many things and getting going here in The Hill Country. 15 year committee member of the Friends of the NRA.
In NY for the last 7 years I have been handling the archery range at Nat'l Hunting and Fishing Day. We get over 400 people in a 7 hour event to come and shoot bows...all for free. All to promote hunting,trapping and fishing. This is a event that takes place nationwide(3rd wk in Sept) and glad it has wings in such a crappy lefty area where hunting fishing and shooting is looked down upon.
One pic of a past day.

I also run the archery portion of Adaptive Sports Field days at a rehab hospital close to West Point. We get some really challenged folks that are loving archery to help with the hand eye coordination challenges rehab presents. The hospital allows us to shoot on hospital grounds and we set up a small range for the various attendees to shoot arrows at. It is incredibly rewarding to do this. This used a be a once a year event. We now do it twice a year and it is getting bigger each year.
I sure hope the guys who have worked with me keep this going when I am totally out of NY...very soon.
I am looking forward to getting involved in youth activities and the Friends of the NRA dinners when I have more time to give Texas.

Coached kids in soccer and baseball when they were young. Was president of the local soccer league for almost 10 years. Gave it up almost 2 years ago. Still help them out with maintenance projects. Just worked on some lights tonight. Before soccer was president of neighborhood association board for several years.

Next thing I want to do is start to volunteer with TYHP. Love taking kids hunting and my son ainít a kid no more and nephews are almost all too old now. Want to help get kids into hunting even if itís just cooking for them.

I wish I had $5 for every hour I spent in a volunteer role over the years. I have volunteered for countless civic organizations including United Way in Dallas and Longview, Board Member of Alamo Area Council of the Boy Scouts in San Antonio and Finance Chairman of the Circle 10 Council Boy Scouts in Longview, Associate Board of the Baptist Memorial Hospital System in San Antonio, Board of Trustees of Southwest Public Broadcasting in San Antonio and Austin, which owned KLRU and KLRN and originally produced Austin City Limits, Member of the Board of Metrocrest Chamber of Commerce in Addison, Board Member of Addison Business Association, Board Member of Longview Economic Development Corporation and Chamber of Commerce, Board of Trustees of White Oak ISD and Board of Trustees of Kilgore College. Currently, on the Planning & Zoning Committee for the City of White Oak. Also volunteered with Habitat for Humanity for several years.

That's what I'm talkin' about Burnadell. Imagine what our communities would be like if half of the adults had that kind of dedication to helping others.

Thank you gentlemen for the kind words. In full disclosure, I was in bank management in most of those years, and civic organizations seem to think that bankers should be on their boards for some reason. Frankly, it was gratifying but tiring. When I got out of banking, I severely limited my volunteer activities.
