The Town of Halifax is searching for volunteers to serve on the following boards and committees: Beautification Committee, Cable TV Advisory Committee, Finance Committee, Halifax Cultural Council, Halifax in Lights, Historic District Commission, Holmes Public Library Trustees, Youth and Recreation Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals (alternates). Many of the Town's departments are run by volunteers. The commitment needed ranges from a few hours a year to several hours a month. If volunteers are unavailable, the activities and programs run by those departments cease and the Town cannot function as it should.
