One of the many things that makes Rochester such a great place to live is the number of volunteers who give of their time to help others.

We received an email from the Mayor's office today regarding volunteer opportunities for you to consider.

They're needing appointments to Music Board, Committee on Urban Design & Environment (CUDE), Mayo Civic Center Commission, Planning and Zoning Commission, Rochester Public Utilities Board and Zoning Board of Appeals.

So, if you live in Rochester and are interested, you can apply through this link: http://www.rochestermn.gov/government/boards-and-commissions

If you'd rather, you can apply at the Rochester Public Library.

Applications are due by Sunday, November 13, 2016.
