Mill Valley Village's Lovely Get Together in Old Mill Park

Mill Valley Village had a wonderful turn-out this past weekend. Many Mill Valley residents stopped by Old Mill Park to chat, make new friends and learn about volunteering for and joining MVV.

On Sunday, I attended a wonderfully animated and "front-porch friendliness" gathering in  called  It was a beautiful warm day and we guestimate that at least 50 Mill Valley residents attended. The get together was held in order to let people know about the progress that is being made in establishing a branch of the “village movement” right here in Mill Valley.

As I’ve written here on Patch before, there are 4 other “villages” in Marin already established and growing in: Ross Valley, Tiburon/Belvedere, Homestead Valley and Sausalito. Mill Valley is set to be the fifth. Plans are already underway to hold more events in the fall. So many interesting people from all walks of life attended our event, enthusiastically willing to share their skills and interests and, for many, their volunteered help for their neighbors.

Marin Villages, of which Mill Valley Village is a part, is a member-driven, grassroots, volunteer-based organization dedicated to providing volunteer services, referrals to carefully screened local service providers, social, cultural and educational events for members, members-only outings, and more. The purpose is to empower and enable members to live out their lives comfortably with peace of mind at home through mutual neighborhood-based support.

For more information about joining or volunteering (you don’t have to be a member to volunteer), email Sue Steele at xerty.10@gmail.com or Sue Johnson at love2row@comcast.net .
