With the new year finally here most everyone is looking for a new diet or a new gym membership to fulfill the usual new year resolutions.
However, for people in the community who are looking for more unique ways to spend their new year there are five unique ideas anyone can try.
Marshall has a wide variety of volunteer opportunities for anyone interested in giving back in the new year.
We have a range of organization like the local Lions Club, Optimist’s Club and newly minted Marshall Hispanic Lions Club who’s sole purposes are to give back to the community.
There are also a number of volunteer opportunities with local churches, such as St. Joseph Catholic Church and Trinity Episcopal Church who offer volunteer opportunities every year on Christmas and Thanksgiving respectively.
Organizations such as Mission Marshall and the Boys and Girls club also offer various opportunities to give back throughout the year.
The director of the Marshall Public Library Anna Lane said that reading more and regularly offers someone a new perspective on the world we live in.
“Reading regularly and differently, or outside one’s comfort zone, broadens one’s horizons, helps to make sense of the world, and offers an increased understanding and enlightenment of people who think and live differently than you,” Lane said.
Anyone interested in getting back into reading or maybe picking it up as a hobby for the first time are welcome to come in and ask the library staff for suggestions, or any questions they may have on where to start.
“The library staff is a very diverse and active group of readers. As part of our Christmas gift exchange this year, we selected and recommended books for each other to read in 2020 to encourage reading new genres and subjects,” Lane said. ‘Beyond the staff’s personal and extensive book knowledge, we also have resources to help find the right book for the right person at the right time.”
