San Antonio Parks & Recreation would like to showcase the Lackland Air Force 543 SPTS as our volunteer stars of the month! This group has volunteered over 150 hours in several parks across the city and has officially adopted Garza Park. At every event they have demonstrated versatility and an amazing “ready-to-volunteer” attitude. Nothing is a challenge for this awesome group. Some of their many efforts have included planting trees, removing invasive bamboo, and even painting a basketball court. AMAZING! When they’re not volunteering, a few of their many missions at Lackland is to generate personnel to operate and maintain communications-electronics and network information technology systems. They also provide management and support for region-wide communications infrastructure requirements and security programs. This group has shown an excellent example of true park stewardship and what it takes to give back to the community.
A big THANK YOU to the 543 SPTS for their hard work!
Several ACS Volunteers have been participating in the local chapter of Comfort for Critters.
These volunteers have been knitting, crocheting and sewing blankets to send home with our foster pets. These blankets will then go with the pet to their new, adoptive homes so they have something comfy and familiar to help transition them to their life with their new families. In just 2 months time, volunteers have donated over 100 homemade blankets and the foster homes are loving them! Thanks to volunteer Phyllis Parra, ACS will be hosting a Comfort for Critters Blanket-Making Party on Sunday, April 27 from 10am - 2pm. ACS Volunteers and the public are invited to participate in this fun event.

Leslie Medina is a teen volunteer at the Bazan branch library. She is known as the “Laptop Lady” and twice a week she helps patrons learn how to better use the computer/Internet. She has helped Bazan’s patrons learn how to cut and paste photos, articles, etc.; how to figure out their tablets, smart phones; how to do research. Mostly, she’s helped patrons to be more comfortable with a computer. The ages of the patrons she helps range from mid-40s to mid-70s.
“I enjoy working as a volunteer for the San Antonio Public Library because not only do I get the opportunity to help people, but I also get to develop my people skills which will help in the future. So it’s really a win-win situation.” - Leslie Medina
Sherrie Vokovich has been a visitor to libraries since she was twelve years old. She is a very faithful and energetic volunteer for us here at the Central library. She has been volunteering with us for over one year. She comes in several days a week to primarily assist with re-shelving the magazine collection. She is very quick and efficient in her duties. She is always willing to lend a helping hand with any other projects we ask her to assist with. She is very friendly and personable with both staff and the public. She is a great asset to the staff here at the library.
Sherrie: I like to volunteer because it brings a smile to customers’ faces when I can help them find a magazine they are looking for. I really like the library and like to spend time using the computers to play games. The library employees are very nice and friendly to me and I enjoy helping out with all types of projects.
