What message do you have for the residents of Seguin?
“Get involved in your community. The payoff is worth every bit of effort. It doesn’t have to be a lot; every little bit helps. And the more people we have volunteering, the easier it becomes. The Seguin Public Library Foundation allows the library to attain resources they might otherwise not have because of certain budget constraints. The Rotary Club of Seguin does so much for students and other non-profits through grants and scholarships. The Irma Lewis Seguin Outdoor Learning Center is such a gem in our community. So I encourage the citizens of Seguin to find something they’re passionate about and get involved. Chances are good there are other like-minded people out there doing whatever it is you are passionate about, and they can sure use the help!”
